16th February 2020 Woodhouse Eaves SORRY FOLKS!! THE WEATHER HAS WON....TOMORROW'S WALK IS CANCELLED. A VERY UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE BUT STAY SAFE AND SEE YOU NEXT MONTH IN ASHFORD IN THE WATER!!! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.
Meet in Woodhouse Eaves, outside the Village Hall LE12 8RZ. There is a small car park (with toilets) and also on road parking. We head out of Woodhouse Eaves with a quick nip up to Windmill Hill, then adjacent to Broombriggs Farm Country Park over to Beacon Hill Country Park and upwards to Beacon Hill. From there we head over towards Deans Lane and Felicity’s Wood and up again to Buck Hill. We return back to Woodhouse Eaves via The Outwoods down Brook Road back to the Village Hall. The walk is approximately 7.5 miles and sticks are advised for those who would normally use them for ups and downs. There are fantastic views from the Windmill Hill and from Beacon Hill where you should be able to look back and see Old John Tower in the distance, an iconic folly in Bradgate Park.
