Napton-on-the-Hill and Lower Shuckburgh. Recommended route from Lutterworth: drive
through Rugby and on straight through Dunchurch on the A426 towards Southam.. Continue
on this road (ignore the first sign left to Napton), along the long straight and
over the (canal) hump-back bridge. At the next cross-road turn left to Stockton and
Napton. Continue through Stockton and on to the junction with the A425 (Southam -
Daventry road). Do not cross this road to enter Napton. Instead, turn right (west
toward Southam). Continue through the 30 mile/h speed limit. Immediately after leaving
the speed limit, and before crossing the canal bridge, turn left into entrance (signposted
“Industrial Estate”, which does not exist) and park.
The walk begins by climbing a small hill into Napton. After walking through Napton
we climb a hill on to a ridge. After walking along the ridge, we descend a hill,
affording views over adjoining countryside, down into Lower Shuckburgh. From there
we cross fields to reach the canal, which we follow back to the bridge on the A425
and thence to our parked cars.
