HW 40 Sherbourne Valley Spon End

header artwork

Continuing our exploration of the Sherbourne Valley we are now approaching the city centre. We meet at the SPON GATE, just off Lower Spon Street, a Wetherspoons pub, at 12 noon.

At 12:30pm we set off, under the Rimg Road, and walk to the banks of the Sherbourne by the footbridge. This attractive iron bridge was moved here fron the Coventry Canal between Sutton Stop and Bedworth in the 1960's. We next follow the river upstream as far as Sherbourne Street, which we walk along to cross the river at Spon Bridge. We go through Spon End, under the Arches and turn right to pass the old Reynold Chains site. Here a footpath takes us over the river again and past the Alvis Retail Site. Then we cross Four Pounds Avenue and walk through Lakeview Park to arrive at the NEW SPIRES at about 1:30pm.

Setting off on our return at 2:00pm we walk up the Guphill to Hearsall Common. Through here we take Hearsall Lane to Sovereign Road, which leads us past Broomfield Park back to the banks of the rageing Sherbourne at Spon End. Over the footbridge and under the Ring Road we return to the SPON GATE for 3:00pm.
