John Stafford’s proposed walk from
BROOKE near Oakham, Rutland
Starting at ST. Peter’s Church in Brooke (LE15 8DE)
OS Explorer map 234 (Rutland Water) GR 850 057
Parking: I suggest taking the right fork immediately in front of the church and parking on the verge at the rear of the church.
A varied walk of approximately 11 miles going along reasonably marked footpaths (good), minor roads (OK), and one busy stretch of major Road (sorry!).
A few stiles and one significant hill (193m). Some spectacular views if fine.
We shall also be walking through the centre of Oakham to get to the Grainstore Brewery & Pub for lunch.
(Suggestion: Why not try a flight of 3 x 1/3pt tasters and a ploughman’s lunch)
John Stafford – Leader.
