bei Meriden, England (United Kingdom)
Traditionally Meriden has always been considered the centre of England, even having a 500-year-old monument; in recent years this seems to have been disproved...
This easy walk is one of two from Meriden (the other being Walk 4125). The walk starts and ends at the Queen's Head pub, Meriden, Solihull. It begins on a quiet lane and soon changes to fields and joins the Heart of England Way. The walk continues and visits two different woods via a bridleway and quiet country lanes. What appears to be a paintball arena is passed through – although I've never seen it used. Then it's back to fields, where you get the chance for excellent views of Birmingham Airport. If you have them, bring binoculars, for plane spotting and at the right time of year, birds of prey. A great morning, afternoon, after-work or summer evening walk, created and submitted April 2007.
The Queen's Head is a small, friendly pub serving food; alternatively, there is the Bull's Head or the Toby Carvery at Stonebridge Island. For the adventurous there are several Indian Balti Houses about three miles down the A45 towards Birmingham (as well as a Harvester).
In the area is the NEC and the National Motorcycle Museum (A45 towards Birmingham – M42 junction) http://www.nationalmotorcyclemuseum.co.uk/
