FORTHCOMING WALKS

Sunday 14th July, Cannock Chase, Staffs   Starting point - The Glacial Boulder car park. - Enter Brocton village and take the Chase Road out of the village. The car park is on this road. Brocton is approx. 75mins from Lutterworth. There are few stiles. Toilet & Ice Cream stops en route.

Sunday 21st July, Fermyn Country Park, Northants.  We will walk a bit of the Livedon Way starting at Fermyn Woods Country Park at about 10.15, The easiest route from Lutterworth is to take the A14 and then turn left at Junction 12 (A6116). Fermyn Woods is about 4 miles up the A6116 on the right hand side of the road (brown sign)  Journey time 30-40 min. The walk is nominally level, there are no stiles and the terrain is good. The countryside is pretty with fields, woods and some good open views.

Sunday  27th July, Hoby, Nr. Melton Mowbray. The walk starts from Hoby at around 10.30 and goes through Frisby and then Gaddesby before returning to Hoby via Brooksby. This is a pretty walk through the rolling countryside around Melton Mowbray.  We wander through Viking villages (the ‘by’ at the end of their names indicates that these places once ‘belonged’ to a Viking by that same name).  The post office at Frisby sells ice cream.  We meander over open farmland along beautifully kept footpaths and through a series of different crops. There are a fewstiles and many kissing gates. We expect the walk to take around 4 hours and we shall stopp for coffee and lunch.

Sunday 11th August, Sherwood Forest. Driving time from Lutterworth is about 90 minutes. Parking in the Visitor Centre. The walk has the option of being reduced to 9 miles. It takes in Rufford Country Park , which has a country house, a ruined 12th Century Abbey and a Sculpture Park.

Sunday 18th August, Upper Harlestone, Northants. Parking in the car park by the Garden Centre

Sunday 22nd September, Napton-on-the-Hill and Lower Shuckburgh. Recommended route from  Lutterworth: drive through Rugby and on straight through Dunchurch on the A426 towards Southam.. Continue on this road (ignore the first sign left to Napton), along the long straight and over the (canal) hump-back bridge. At the next cross-road turn left to Stockton and Napton. Continue through Stockton and on to the junction with the A425 (Southam - Daventry road). Do not cross this road to enter Napton. Instead, turn right (west toward Southam). Continue through the 30 mile/h speed limit. Just after leaving the speed limit, and before crossing the canal bridge, turn left into entrance (signposted “Industrial Estate”, which does not exist) and park.

The walk begins by climbing a small hill into Napton. After walking through Napton we climb a hill on to a ridge. After walking along the ridge, we descend a hill, affording views over adjoining countryside, down into Lower Shuckburgh. From there we cross fields to reach the canal, which we follow back to the bridge on the A425 and thence to our parked cars.
