Nathan,
The Orange Tree is that on the road to Kenilworth, if so we have been there for meals many years ago.Didn't a king hide in the Orange tree.

Nathan  thanks for new walk idea from White Lion but 6 miles is about my limit now so I'd have to try Saracens Head with transport. O0


Thanks for reminding me of that little donkey, maybe he gets called allsorts. ;D

We use this when the weather is bad, catch a 71,72,or 957 bus,to the rover works solihull, follow towpath to knowle,  up to the wilsons arms.then the number 3 bus stop is opposite the wilsons arms, back to solihull, check number 3 bus for changes
