Most people who take a walk along the Avon at Stratford head downstream from the tramway bridge or beyond. Very pleasant. It’s not as easy to find, but there’s also a path going in upstream from Clopton Bridge. Try to ignore the sounds of the often heavy traffic on the Warwick and Tiddington Roads, and the big houses on the latter with their lawns sweeping down to the opposite bank of the river. Then it is just a couple of minutes’ walk to a peaceful rural scene.
