Leicestershire Short Walks – 24

Claybrooke Parva and High Cross and Claybrooke Magna 5 miles (8km)

Claybrooke Parva church

Claybrooke Parva church

From the beautifully proportioned 14th century church at Claybrook Parva our route takes us through gently undulating countryside for a tranquil walk in the footsteps of the Romans from High Cross for one and a half miles along the pleasant hedged green track of the old Fosse Way, then across pasture fields to return via Claybrook Magna. Flat and easy walking.

Items of interest High Cross, the centre of Roman England, is at the junction of two important Roman Roads, the Fosse Way and Watling Street (now the busy A5). Our route takes the quiet Fosse Way. The High Cross monument, erected in 1712, is near the information board at the entrance to the Fosse Way. Claybrooke Parva has a beautiful church (c.1340) in a lovely setting.

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