Churches and churchyards are wonderfully interesting and peaceful places.In a busy fast moving world it is not always easy to find places to be still or to have the time to just be quiet. Discovering a haven of tranquility on your walk can be both refreshing and invigorating and in churches and churchyards across Warwickshire there are many such hidden places of peace; for rest, reflection, remembrance or prayer. Churches are also full of history, with wonderful craftsmanship and are a valuable part of our countries heritage.
Many of the churchyards on the walks are also places of special wildlife interest.

The series of Church2Church Walks in Warwickshire offer the walker something uniquely different. Because the distances between churches are generally very manageable to walk, it is about taking your time to go from Church2Church, to enjoy and appreciate the countryside around and when finally, you arrive at the next church, to allow yourself time to have a look around and to enjoy and appreciate the stillness and peace that can be found in and around churches and churchyards.
Many churchyards have benches situated in the most spiritually uplifting of places where walkers can sit, take a break or just simply catch their breath.

On your walks when you find a church open (and many are) and you would like to have a look around, please do so but be respectful if you have muddy walking boots.
