The Monarch's Way
The Monarch's Way is one of the most famous walking routes in the British Isles. The Route was taken by King Charles II during his escape after defeat by Cromwell in the final battle of the Civil Wars at Worcester in 1651.
The young King was pursued for weeks by parliamentary troops. Charles escape from captivity included excursions to many counties in The Midlands and Southern Counties. His route took him through Stratford upon-Avon and 'The Farm' itself.
The route from start to finish is a mere 625 miles long!
