The Tuesday walk from Peatling Parva was well attended. The sun brilliant but the wind still had Winter’s bite. There were signs here and there of Spring green.

The route via Bruntingthorpe took us by the first two lambs we have seen this year but by the time I was in position to photograph them ‘mum’ had them in the shed.

Snow balling in Leicestershire

January 20, 2016 by

Tuesday, 19th January was a very cold morning but this did not prevent a good turn out for the members of our Association.  Walking  from Billesdon towards Gaulby a giant snowball was found.  This was to big to pick up or attempt at throwing at the leader.  Bringing back memories of times long past, et cetera, et cetera.  Angela very thoughtfully took the displayed photograph.  Roll on those wonderful warm days of Summer.

Any one for a snowball fight!

2015 in review

January 2, 2016 by

A Happy New Year to all our followers from Leicestershire Footpath Association.

WordPress.com prepared a 2015 annual report for our website you can view a summary or the full report, just follow the link below.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Wednesday short walk 6th January

December 27, 2015 by

There is a problem with the short Wednesday walk on 6th January. Unfortunately on that day the local hunt has reserved the pub (The Cock Inn at Peatling Magna). They are unable to accommodate walkers at lunch time. Also the use of their car park will NOT be allowed.

I did consider starting the walk from ‘The Shires’ at Peatling Parva but this pub is closed after New Year until Thursday 7th Jan therefor I think it is best to stay with Peatling Magna although there will be no toilets available. Parking should be available around the village and then meet outside the pub. Walkers will have to arrange their own lunch.
