Easy walking in rather flat, mixed pasture and arable land, with some beautiful open areas and lovely woodland tracks.
Items of interest Burbage Wood and the Common are well worth exploring. There is an information centre at Lynden Lea. (Grid Ref. 447 953). On Sapcote recreation ground slight humps in the grass indicate the remains of a Norman castle mound (Toot Hill). Aston Flamville has a dovecote dated 1715, in brick patterning.
