Walkers waiting directions from the leader
Our leader who guided us well
By special arrangement the walk started from the “Cock Inn” at Peatling Magna. Twenty five walkers did the longer walk of nearly six miles. The ground was saturated in places following overnight rain. Some slopes were slippery and good balance was necessary in places. Fortunately there were no ploughed fields to cross. There were at least fourteen stiles, some of which were in a bad state of repair.
The walk started by joining the Leicestershire Round and walking towards Willoughby Waterleys. Joining the Mere Road and continued in a southerly direction and then joining footpath Y20 taking us towards Bruntingthorpe. It was on this footpath where difficult stiles were met. Those in a dangerous condition will be notified to LCC.
All walkers made a safe return to Peatling Magna and enjoyed refreshment at the “Cock Inn”
