Leicestershire Short Walks – 14

Hallaton and Cranoe 5 miles (8km)



Route A mix of pasture and arable fields. Lots of hills, with com-pensatingly fine views from the high ground. Hallaton sits very prettily in a hollow to the east of its old castle site.

Hallaton, the scene of the Easter Bottle Kicking ceremony, is a village full of interest. The church is lovely and the houses round the green as pretty as a picture. After your walk a visit to Hallaton museum is worth while. Open May/Oct. Saturdays and Sundays 2.30 – 5pm

The route passes the site of the very impressive 11th century motte and bailey castle.

Please read the introduction to the original book updated for the web published walks.

The written description and map is a .pdf file which you can print and take with you on the walk.
