This is the first section on this journey where I do not know the way at all and the route has been planned entirely from the map. If you have suggestions for improvements, please let me know, particularly for the route out of Coventry. This is not a long section but is almost all on the road, luckily it looks as if most of it is minor roads but being squeezed between towns, main roads, rivers etc gives very little choice at a couple of places. West of Tamworth there is an interesting moment when the A38, A446, A453 and my route all converge. I cannot tell from the map which way I can go to negotiate a way across. The map suggests there might be a way straight under the A453 but it may be a matter of going along the A453 to the B4151 junction and then down that - we will see!
Next section: Lichfield to Chester.
