Sunday 5th January, Normanton Le Heath.


Sunday ?? , 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


Sunday  tba, Hoby, Nr. Melton Mowbray. The walk starts from Hoby at around 10.30 and goes through Frisby (ice cream available) 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 (as indicated by the ‘by’ at the end of their names). We meander over open farmland along beautifully kept footpaths and through a series of different crops. There are fewstiles but many kissing gates. We expect the walk to take around 4 hours and we shall stop for coffee and lunch.
