From the OLD A6 (London Rd) turn down by St Cuthbert’s Church,
then take the 3rd (Main St) or 4th (Bindley Lane) road on the left.
Follow the road round and then take the road (next to Fordview Close) to the Recreation Ground carpark.
On the OS Explorer Map 233 (Leicester & Hinckley) the grid reference is SP 657 982.
The 10 mile walk is an undulating mix of well used paths and some road walking. It can be muddy when wet.
Lunch will be at The Black Horse at Houghton-on-the-Hill, or bring your own food. It isn’t the cheapest of pubs but it is the only one in the area. There are several menus but the best value appears to be “Two courses for £12”. There is also a “Walker’s Special Menu” with main courses ranging from £7.95 to £11.95.
