Walks around Stratford sub Castle

Short local walks for residents or visitors. Each walk has a set of photos to guide you and notes about the views and points of interest.

The notes indicate whether a walk is suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs, or during poor weather. However, the comments are personal opinions only. If you have any feedback about any of the walks, please let us know, especially if you think the instructions need amending.

Parking for walks: With the exception of the area around Mill Lane where there are  double-yellow lines, there is no restrictive parking in Stratford sub Castle but please be careful not to obstruct residents’ driveways. Suggested parking areas would be at the southern end of the village (near Hudson’s Field) or the northern end (near St Lawrence Church) - see our Location map.
