The walk file: Edge Hill, Warwickshire

Yesterday’s Financial Times featured details of a walk up Edge Hill in Warwickshire:

Even at this limited altitude, just a couple of hundred metres above sea level, the views west show the plains of south Warwickshire stretching far into the horizon. A mile and a half down from the trail is the spot where, in 1642, the Battle of Edgehill ā€“ the opening contest of the civil war ā€“ was fought. King Charles Iā€™s troops massed on the hill before the battle to observe their Roundhead enemies.

  1. I really enjoyed walking there last year. It’s a great spot and they’re right to say the views are fantastic.
