Leicestershire Short Walks – 15

Glooston and Stonton Wyville 4 miles (6.5km)

Old Barn Inn at Glooston Leicestershire

Old Barn Inn at Glooston Leicestershire

The church in Glooston is much restored. Its graveyard is massed with aconites and snowdrops in early spring. Stonton Wyville is a small hamlet with its tiny 13th century church and interesting monuments to the Brudenall family. (The Brudenalls still own land in this area.) The remains of extensive fishpond gardens lie beside the old Manor House.

The walk crosses the Roman (Gartree) Road from Leicester to Colchester, crossing the Welland near Medbourne.

There is a lovely view from the northernmost point, as you turn back to Glooston, of Nosely Hall (early 18th century).

Please read the introduction to the original book updated for the web published walks.

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