Great Central Walk

'The 4.5 mile pathway can be used for walking or cycling and a great deal of wildlife can be seen in the diverse mix of habitats along the pathway. The Warwickshire Wildlife Trust does a lot of work to maintain this wildlife habitat and many different species of rare and endangered wildlife can be seen on the walk including 24 species of butterfly, such as marbled white and common blue, and birds ranging from kestrels and warblers in the breeding season to redwing and fieldfare in the winter.'
