Walk 6 Gaddesby and Ashby Folville

Carington Arms - Ashby Folville

Carington Arms – Ashby Folville

In Gaddesby visit the church to see the Colonel Cheney monument. Note the date stones on Harewell cottages, Harewell House and, less obvious, Morton House.  In Barsby we pass a small building known as Tower House or Godson’s Folly, which resembles a church and stands on Church Lane. It may never have been consecrated as a church and is now simply a dwelling. More date stones to inspect, much older this time: 1701 in brick on The Cottage, 1691 next door at Stoneleigh and opposite, 1701.

The written description and map is a .pdf file which you can print and take with you on the walk.
