This is a 4½ mile walk with six stiles on public footpaths, a quiet country road and the towpath.
Meet 10:15 for a 10:30 start on Thursday 18th November 2021 in the car park of Ye Olde Red Lion Hotel, 1 Park Street, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire CV13 0LL
Starting in the historic market square of Market Bosworth we proceed downhill, first passing The Dixie Grammar School and then Market Bosworth Community School, before continuing across a disused golf course. Soon after crossing a heritage railway line, we join the Ashby Canal at bridge 43. We follow the towpath northwards to bridge 44, where we leave the canal to walk a short distance along Congerstone Road. Here, we pass through a gap in the hedge to pick up a footpath that will take us to the village of Carlton, crossing the railway for a second time. From there we follow the Leicestershire Round long-distance footpath most of the way back to our starting point.
NB There are public toilets in Back Lane, alongside the Dixie Grammar School. We will pass these conveniences shortly after setting off.
