Thornton Reservoir LE67 1AR

Where to meet: the car park actually attached to the reservoir. It's on Reservoir Road itself (pretty much where the river that leaves the reservoir goes under the road if you're looking at a map). From what I remember there are around 20+ spaces there but parking is fairly limited as it's a popular destination at the weekend. I think it's free.

Please note there aren't any toilet facilities nearby at the start of the walk.

Where the walk will go: just around the edge of reservoir in one large circle.

Length of walk: around 60mins

Terrain: flat and wheel friendly. The last 200 metre stretch is along a narrow pavement on Reservoir road. I have no idea how flooded or muddy it is I'm afraid as I have no means of getting there!

Where we will go afterwards: There is a pub 5mins walk up the hill from the reservoir car park, although please can I encourage people to move their cars from the reservoir car park to the pub car park so we're not hogging the reservoir car park once we have finished walking around the reservoir.

We will start walking at 10:45am. If you are running late please call or text me. Thanks.

    Have to meet up with parents in the morning while they still in Leicester re house keys. Andy Myers offered a few days ago to lead the walk so my absence won't affect anything. Have a good walk. Hope you don't get too wet!

    Ironically, I'm leading the walk but can't get there myself. Is anybody able to give me a lift from around Leicester train station or London Road? Thanks!

    Sorry Lizzie, I can't help as I don't go anywhere near Leicester to get to Thornton. I'm sure there's someone who lives that way - hope so. See you Saturday.

    Would like to join you on Saturday. There is a Tigers match later that day which I steward at but think I can fit both in!
