Wednesday Short Walk 26/2/20 CANCELLED

February 19, 2020 by

Unfortunately this walk from Groby, is cancelled due to the very poor ground conditions.

The pre walk identified a lot of standing water and very slippery conditions which are unlikely to improve by next week, given the weather outlook.

Winter Walks

January 27, 2020 by

Last Tuesday’s walk from the Bell at Gumley was a welcome relief from rain and mud as we had brilliant sunshine and used the small quiet country roads on the high ground. As we all know some of the best Leicestershire countryside can be seen from this route. Entering Loughton we came across this annual welcome scene of our first Spring lambs.

keyham, Dog and Gun

January 21, 2020 by

The landlord of the Dog and Gun, Keyham has advised he is unable to get staff to be able to offer meals to groups on weekday lunch times.

If you are considering leading a walk from this pub in future then it is best to check with Landlord before confirming for the walks programme.
