Help connect Broughton Astley

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Broughton Astley’s Slow Ways.

Pleasant villages and quiet countryside but this walk is spoilt by the need to walk a busy and fast road between Bitteswell and Ashby Parva. Ashby Road starts well with a pavement but unfortunately this ends just before a bend in the road. This is not a nice road to be walking along so I feel I have to fail the route with the caveat that the bus runs hourly between Bitteswell and Ashby Parva, I would strongly recommend its use. Ashby offers an inn just off route....

The walk starts well from Broughton Astley with a bit of pavement that takes us through the local shops of Primethorpe, a suburb of Broughton Astley. This disappointing lack of compliance persisted all the way to the road at Littlethorpe so could spoil an otherwise fine walk had there been standing crops....

Seats and picnic bench in the park, a pub and just off route a Co-op. The field paths from the motorway to Sapcote were fine and a stroll through the park with seats and a picnic table offer a break if required. There is a good permissive path around the farm which is misleadingly officially waymarked....

We follow the path across a couple of fields and along field edges (plenty of gates) to the stream below Sutton Lodge, where we turn right and follow the field path out to the Fosse Way. Here we go right a short distance then turn left into what is now a lay-by (with a burger van when I passed), then cross the main road and walk a short distance along the verge to find the signposted path than leads between hedges and across fields to the edge of Sapcote. We follow the pavements and a couple of alleyways past the church, then take the surfaced path along the edge of a park. A gate allows us through to Smithy Lane, where we pass a large mobile home site before returning to the pavement of Hinckley Road until the edge of the wood, where we turn right up another Smithy Lane....

There is no evidence that anyone has tried to assert the right to cross the first field directly recently, and the longer route around the edge seems well trodden....

The parts of the route along roads had very good footpaths....

I knew most of the route, and was impressed with most of the suggested route - maybe my local knowledge could suggest some very minor alterations, but I was generally very happy with it. I used Komoot to download the route, and most of my photos can be seen there - https://www.komoot.com/tour/360197571?ref=wtd...
