Sunday tba,

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. Immediately 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,  Watermead Park. The walk will be approx. 6 miles on good footpaths / tracks. No stiles involved. Parking is at the car park adjacent to the A46, between the villages of Syston and Wanlip. The country park’s main entrance can be accessed from Wanlip Road, Syston, near to the Hope and Anchor pub (LE7 1PD). Parking is £2.50.

 

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.
