A walk starting in the village of Milton heading off towards and around Foremark Reservoir before heading back to Milton.
This is circular walk of approx 5.5 miles (8.8 km).
Foremark Reservoir was constructed in the 1970s to supply Leicester and the East Midlands with drinking water. Operated by Severn Trent Water, it has a surface area of 230 acres and contains up to 2900 million gallons of water.
Foremark is treasured for its wildlife habitats and is a centre for those who love the outdoors. Foremark Reservoir has many waymarked trails for walkers, and picnic areas where you can take in the beautiful surroundings.
Sturdy footwear, appropriate clothing for the weather and something to drink are advisable.
This walk includes several fairly steep inclines. You may therefore find it more difficult than the other recent walks that I have organised. If you are very unfit, you may find it a challenge.
Meet at 2.30pm outside the Swan Inn pub in the village
