Members and non-members are welcome to attend our celebration of the Leicestershire Round recreational route being published by the Leicestershire Libraries in 1983. Three booklets describing the route with maps, narrative and pictures were published. The last booklet being issued in September 1983. Today, Leicestershire County Council publish the whole route in one book.
On Tuesday, 3rd September, 2013, at 10.45am at Bradgate Park House ruins a short commemorative event has been arranged by the Leicestershire County Council and ourselves. The Tuesday group will walk from the “Badgers Sett” public house at Cropston at 10.00am and will walk to the ruins and meet the press, County Council representatives and members of the committee of the Leicestershire Footpath Association.
At 11.00am the Secretary of the Leicestershire Footpath Association will lead a walk of six miles from the ruins. This will be a circular walk of six miles visiting Old John, Woodhouse Eaves and Swithland Woods. This walk is based on the first walk in the short walks book of the Leicestershire Round.
