This delightfully varied 10 mile route in the border lands between Leicestershire and Derbyshire is full of interest.
The church on Breedon Hill that stand high on a limestone outcrop with fine views to the far distance, the charming country estate of Staunton Harold, the diverse bird life around the reservoir, the courtyard café and craft shops at Ferrers, the open park land of Calke Abbey, the old limestone quarries and kilns of Ticknell.
This walk packs them all in. The going is good underfoot and rarely is mud a problem. A small torch may be useful for the short tramway tunnel at Ticknell for those with poor eyesight and a fear of dark places.
The walk should take between 5 and 6 hours depending mainly on how distracted we become, as there is a lot to take in.
The route is suitable for dogs with their owners on a lead.
Toilets at start and café half way.
