Just over the footbridge turn right, down the path by the railway to Albany Road, turn left along Albany Road, past the City Arms, a J D Wetherspoon pub recommended for good value food and drink. Continue straight along Earlsdon street, with it’s many cafe’s and shops, and a few minutes beyond you will find St Barbara’s Church at the junction with Beechwood Avenue. (1.1 mile 25 minutes.)
From Canley station the most direct walk is to exit the station on the north side and go down Canley Road past the Go Outdoors warehouse and turn right by The Farmhouse pub into Beechwood Avenue, over the footbridge adjacent to the narrow railway road-bridge and continue down Beechwood Avenue baring right until you reach St. Barbara’s church on your right.
