The Hobblers Way is a coast to coast walk across the midlands of England which runs for one hundred and ninety odd miles from the River Nene Estuary in the East to the Severn Bridge in the West. It was designed as a Millennium project by Tred Parris and his fellowship band of Hobblers, a group of walking friends from the Northamptonshire area. The route runs in a line north-east to south-west across England and through the counties of Lincolnsihre, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Oxofordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Some towns and points of interest visited or passed close to on the route include the Fens, Crowland, Stamford, Corby, Daventry, Edge Hill, Shipston-on-Stour, Moreton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold and Thornbury. The route shares parts of its course with some other long distance paths including the Jurassic Way and Monarch's Way.
