This is a walk through the grounds of the University of Warwick and the surrounding lanes and as such is almost entirely along metalled paths. We start at the Phantom Coach on the A45 Fletchamstead Highway. The No 12 bus from Pool Meadow takes us very close to the pub.

The Phantom Coach was built at much the same time as the A45 Coventry Bypass, in the 1930's and is very much a product of its time, being a large roadhouse with ' moderne ' touches. Meeting at 12 noon we have refreshments before moving on past the crematorium and into Ivy Farm Lane.

This takes us past some attractive old houses to the car park at the rear of Canon Park Shopping Centre.
Then we take the path to the University. We turn right and pass a long rectangular pool to reach University Road, where we turn right again to reach Gibbet Hill Road and the VARSITY.

From the Varsity we return along Gibbet Hill Lane to come to the lakes. Here herons are a common sight.

We follow the path past the lakes and through fields to return to the entrance path to the University again. We walk back past Canon Park again and through a housing estate to grassland alongside a stream and then the A45 to return to the Phantom Coach.

Here there is the choice of Banks Bitter and Charles Wells Bombardier. Food is also available here for those of you making a day of it. There is a full "Sizzler" menu which is very good value or for £20, two people can enjoy two courses each (or £25 for three courses) with a bottle of the house wine to share, and it's available anytime.
