Thornton Reservoir

 

We'll meet up at the car park just outside the village of Thornton about 10:30am. the walk is around the perimeter of the lake and will take approximately and hour, may be  a little longer, it's a fairly easy walk with no real rough ground though it might be a little muddy in places depending upon the weather over the next few days obviously.

If you're not sure of anything call me on[masked]

 

if you com up the A50 to Markfield and turn left at the Island into Thornton Lane then just follow the signs for Thornton, if you drive to the end of the stretch of road along the reservoir the car park is on the right. paste this in to your browser to see a map.

      Hi Paul. I'm almost certain that Thornton Reservoir is the longest walk we do! That one usually works out as being over an hour whereas most walks we do are intentionally around 50mins.

    April 16, 2013

      Hi Alina. Welcome! You should see an RSVP button somewhere attached to this walk. If you click on that then click on 'yes' you will have 'put yourself down' for the walk and you will appear with the others who hope to come in the column on the right. That way we know to expect you. Andrew below was referring to being put down as the person leading the walk. Look forward to meeting you...
