Country Walks Around the National Forest

Country Walks Around the National Forest

by: Brian Conduit
The National Forest is an area of 200 square miles covering parts of west Leicestershire, east Staffordshire and south Derbyshire. The River Trent winds across the heart of it and for much of the way it is partnered by the Trent and Mersey Canal. The landscape is undulating with plenty of extensive, sweeping and even dramatic views. The many woodlands, both new and mature, are among the major attractions for walkers as are paths across riverside meadows and along canal towpaths. In addition there are attractive villages, great parklands and many sites of historic interest.

This collection of twenty walks is not just confined to the boundaries of the National Forest but also includes a number of interesting and attractive areas on its periphery. Each walk includes a summary box of practical information, clear route finding instructions plus a sketch map and notes on points of interest.
The walk locations are: Tutbury, Stonepit Hills and Hanbury; Repton and Newton Solney; Shardlow; Melbourne and Breedon on the Hill; Calke Park and Ticknall; Burton-upon-Trent; Hoar Cross; Barton-under-Needwood; Fradley Junction and Alrewas; National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas and Wychnor; Rosliston and Walton-on-Trent; Coton in the Elms; Moira Furnace and Ashby Canal; Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Blackfordby and Smisby; Staunton Harold; Osgathorpe; Sence Valley; Bradgate Park; Thornton Reservoir and Stanton under Bardon; Bosworth Battlefield.
