Walking (Half day Third Thursday) – April

Our next walk on the 19th April will be from the Horse & Jockey in Manton, the village 3 miles beyond Uppingham on the A6003 (an attractive 40 minutes drive from Market Harborough). Chris Mosley is leading. After the long and big dip in the A6003 you enter a 40 mph area at the top of a hill; turn right there then 1st left down to the pub. Good parking in cul-de-sac. The walk, 4.75 miles, a mixture of farm land (mostly grass), includes some ‘safe’ road and track. The views to Rutland Water as we return are splendid. We will pass through the pretty village of Brook and over the site of Martinsthorpe, a lost village. Commence at 10 am and conclude about 12.30 pm. Please let Chris know if you would like to take part : telephone 01536 771258. New members welcome.
