Walk Number 5 (Available April to September) £7.50 per person (minimum 8 adults, children free) Walk 5 Photographs

This walk uses the footpaths along Barton Road. The Roman Villa site is not far away, (not accessible) and so is Silk Hill where Neolithic pottery was discovered in 2018. A historic part of Market Bosworth. This rural walk takes us across the old Kyngs Golf Course to the Ashby Canal, and Marina. Crossing the canal, we travel to Far Coton and then to the edge of Shenton enjoying views of the Battlefield Line from the canal viaduct. From there we continue to the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre. We then cross the road (or continue along the canal path) and walk back across fields to Sutton Lane and Market Bosworth. Uneven ground, 4 stiles, and 12 steep steps. 5 miles approx.

 

Bespoke Walks.

We are happy to discuss your requirements with you. For groups of 10 or more we will design a walk to your specification and requirements, wherever possible. We do not trespass upon private land and have the land owner’s agreement where we do pass over private land. There is a space on the booking form to set out individual requirements. We will do all we can to supply your walk. After all, we want you to come and enjoy our beautiful countryside and Market Town. Please use this option if you prefer a walk on any day other than a Saturday or Wednesday or outside the 1st May and the 30th September.

Refreshments.

Refreshments are available for all walks. These will start from the Bosworth Hall Hotel and return there. Tea/coffee id £2.50 per person. Luncheon (two courses) is £13.50 per person. If you require a children’s menu that can be arranged, please state your requirements on the booking form.

Other Considerations.

Please remember that most of our walks (except walk 1) will require a reasonable level of mobility. You will be walking across rural footpaths and will have to negotiate some stiles and uneven ground and gateways. Walks 2 to 5 are unsuitable for mechanical aides. If you use a wheelchair or any ride on device we would urge you to contact us via the email address for advice. We will do all we can to help but are unable to change the terrain or the landowners chosen method of protection.
