Starting in the Medieval market town of Henley in Arden with its half timbered buildings and the earthwork remains of "Beaudesert Castle" the route passes through the village of Ullenhall and then the magnificent "Coughton Court" home of the Throckmorton family who were associated with the "gunpowder plot" of 1605.

The shorter route then returns to Henley passing huge swathes of newly planted trees and some of the remnants of the Ancient Forest of Arden in the form of "Bannams Wood" and "Clouse Wood".

The main course continues through the town of Alcester settled first in Roman times, but later chosen by the Marquis of Hertford who built "Ragley Hall" there as the family seat.

Forest Marathon routes

Starting in the Medieval market town of Henley in Arden with its half timbered buildings and the earthwork remains of "Beaudesert Castle" the route passes through the village of Ullenhall and then the magnificent "Coughton Court" home of the Throckmorton family who were associated with the "gunpowder plot" of 1605.

The shorter route then returns to Henley passing huge swathes of newly planted trees and some of the remnants of the Ancient Forest of Arden in the form of "Bannams Wood" and "Clouse Wood".

The main course continues through the town of Alcester settled first in Roman times, but later chosen by the Marquis of Hertford who built "Ragley Hall" there as the family seat.

The way then skirts Oversley Wood and several more thatched hamlets before arriving at Aston Cantlow. A sharp left turn and in about a mile and a half we rejoin the short route through the swathes of newly planted trees.
