Walking (All Day)


Our cross country walks generally start from a location within a radius of 30 minutes travelling time from Market Harborough.
From March to October the circular walks are usually between 8 - 10 miles depending on the terrain and number of stiles.  A packed lunch is required and there is a refreshment stop at a village pub.
During the winter period the walks are around 6 miles starting from a pub where lunch is arranged.

Where and when

We meet usually at 10am on the last Thursday of the month at various locations in the surrounding area, please telephone for details.
