In the morning the Watershed crosses the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal and the Grand Union Canal. I saw a notice (see photo) underneath the bridge over the GUC - confirming that I was in the right place. The Trent River Authority was responsible to the left, and the Severn to the right.
I lunched at the Famous Tipperary Inn at Meer End, where the tune had been written in 1915. Then onto map 140, and a serious of good but flat footpaths across farmland. There was plenty of wildlife - squirrels, hares, rabbits and shrews - and an abundance of oak trees. By late afternoon I'd reached the Queen's Head near Meriden, which I learned about the village's claim to be the centre of England.
I had a bad and painful stumble as I got onto the footbridge over the M6, but was able to make my way to Fillongley, where I camped in the back garden (at 291874) of a couple who made me very welcome (and even gave me some money for my sponsored charity).
