Kenilworth Greenway



The Kenilworth to Berkswell Greenway is a linear Country Park located in the picturesque South Warwickshire countryside, about 15 minutes from Coventry. It is well-liked by walkers, athletes, bikers, horseback riders, life scientists, geologists, and industrial archaeologists.

The Greenway is primarily a man-made landscape feature. Natural processes, on the other hand, have developed a linear feature of significant ecological relevance over time. The Greenway, which is set among a cultivated environment of undulating landforms, is an important green corridor for wildlife, connecting regionally important conservation areas such as Kenilworth Common, Crackley Wood, Broadwells Wood, and Black Waste Wood.

When left alone, the disused railway created a wildlife corridor. Animals and birds sought protection for caves and nests as hawthorn, birch, and other plants swiftly took root and smoothed the edges.
