Draycote Meadows


Draycote Meadows is an area of 5.5 Hectares located to the west of Draycote Water and accessible by footpaths from Thurlaston village.  It is managed by the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

The map below shows two footpaths to Draycote Meadows. 

It may be approached by joining the Draycote Water perimeter road taking the path leading down to the shore from St Edmund’s Church. At Draycote Water turn right  and walk anticlockwise along Sustrans Cycle Route 41 towards Draycote village.

Alternatively leave Thurlaston along Biggin Hall Lane and continue along a public footpath through a small woodland area into the meadows.
