blank tabTHE KENILWORTH GREENWAYTourist Attraction
Kenilworth, Warwickshire, CV8 2JS


Kenilworth Greenway is a former railway line linking Kenilworth Junction to Berkswell and it has now taken on a new lease of life following a £50 million Lottery grant awarded. Work started quickly in January 2008 and following cutting back and clearing of undergrowth a new technique was used to lay a hard surface. The surface is suitable for walkers and cyclists, who are actively encouraged to use the route, but not motorcyclists. Horse riders are also welcomed but must follow their own bridle path to the side of the hard surface. There are mounting blocks for riders at each of the new access points that have been installed and riders must obtain a permit before using the route.

The name "Stratford" means "street ford". This derives from Roman times when there was a ford over the Avon at the point where the road crossed the river (today this road is the A422 to London).
