Loughborough-Staplef­ord park and Booth wood

Somewhere not far from Loughborough

Meeting: From Old Ashby road enter Pitsford drive and then just after you pass Nasby drive on your right you will see the path crossing Pitsford drive from left to right. Park here, we will be setting off to the right. The entrance to the path is about 200m up Pitsford drive.

LE11 4NY should take you to the correct place.

Transport: Old Ashby road is served by the 126/127 bus from Leicester get off at the stop near Pitsford drive. Car drivers please park with consideration to local residents.

Description: A walk starting at the edge of Loughborough using the old train track from Shepshed to Loughborough and passing through Booth wood before returning via local streets, Stapleford park and a viewpoint to the start. This is from a series of Charnwood family walks.

Conditions: Muddy soft, woodland paths, paved paths and parkland. When I walked this on 1st Jan it was muddy, dont expect it will be any different now, stout shoes/boots recommended.

Afterwards: Probably the Harvester pub on Ashby road

    Would love to get to this so if there's a carshare going from Nottingham, I would be only too happy to pay fuel costs. Failing that, could get to Luff by train but does anyone know if its possible to then get a bus to the location?
    Cheers.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
