To the north the ground falls away fairly steeply, rather less so to the west and east, and very gently to the south; this convex site is itself in a shallow basin, with a range of hills to the north-west and west and sporadic hills to the north-east. 2) The greater part of the modern city is on Permian Breccia and Sandstone, with a ridge of Triassic Keuper Sandstone giving place to Keuper Red Marls on the eastern side. 3) The whole area is well watered, for the River Sherbourne (now largely carried in culverts) meanders through the western, central, and eastern parts of what was the medieval city and is joined from the north by Radford Brook, or 'the water from Hill Mill'. Set in the heart of the historic town centre, the Collegiate Church of St Mary – with its 174ft tall tower – is a must-see attraction for visitors to Warwick.It is a major local landmark that receives thousands of visitors from around the globe, who come to admire its architectural grandeur.

The masterplan was drawn up following a two year consultation process with the St Mary’s Lands Working Party – made up of the Corp of Drums, Friends of St Mary’s Lands, Golf Centre, Hill Close Gardens, Warwick Racecourse, Racing Club Warwick Football Club, Warwick Town Council, Warwickshire County Council and the Warwick Society.
District council spokesman Noel Butler, a member of the St Mary’s Lands working party, said: “After many years of planning and consultation, we are very pleased to see that work is now underway.
“Having received positive support for our plans from local people during the consultation, we are confident that the improvements which will be made are going to make a big impact for regular users of the lands and visitors alike.” Andre Klein, manager of Warwick Racecourse and also a member of the St Mary’s Lands working party, was equally pleased to see work start.
He added: “I’m delighted to see that our ambitious plans to improve and regenerate St Mary’s Lands are now taking shape.
