Milton & Foremark Walk

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 

Postcode for SatNav - DE65 6EF

This event will be weather dependent.... and will be rescheduled if wet. 

As with any DS event, all those taking part in a walk are responsible for their own safety at all times.

    The weather is very changeable at the moment and the forecast seems to change hourly, so please keep an eye this page for updates about the event. I will check the local forecast on Friday evening and post an update but may need to leave the final decision until Saturday morning.

      Over the last couple of days the forecast for tomorrow has changed from dry to very wet and back again. At the moment, it seems to be mainly dry but with the risk of an isolated shower. As it stands now, the walk will be going ahead but please check here tomorrow late morning, as it could have completely changed again by then!

      Although it's looking a bit grey, the forecast hasn't changed from yesterday, so we'll go ahead as planned. Bring a waterproof, just in case :-)

    Hi Steve, only just taken notice of start time. I'm out this evening too so not going to be able to make it now as I don't think I'll be back in time.

    Is this something you can bring your dogs along with?

    I have changed the start time of this event, so that the pub will be open when we return to Milton :-)

      I wouldn't know. I only enter pubs, during the day, when I'm with you.

      Have had to cancel as I'm out in the evening and don't think I'll have time to get my glad rags on with the time change. Enjoy people and hope to see you on another event soon :-)

    Hi Steve, had an invite to a little girl's 3rd birthday party so will have to drop out of this event.

    Regards, Jayne G.

    Having done a recce of this walk now, I can tell you that it does include several fairly steep inclines. You may therefore find it more difficult than other recent walks I have organised. If you are very unfit, you may find it a challenge!
