A good Leicestershire country walk, two country parks and a bit of canal. A direct field walk is available from Sutton Cheney to Harper’s Hill but that would miss the option for a cafe stop half way. A short pavement walk takes us to the popular Country Park. The road walk along Ambion Lane has a pavement which ends where we take the bridleway. The path to Sutton Wharf is well walked and before flood damage, seen on my visit, it had offered a good surface. Crossing the bridge the path remains signed for ‘The Round’ a walk devised by members of the Leicestershire Footpath Association to mark their centenary back in 1987....

Quite a lot of stiles, especially in the western half. Sections of it very muddy in winter. Pretty flat generally....

Walk this route

Pleasant walk for the majority of the route with a few exceptions. Near the start of the route as the walk heads towards Gallows Lane/Measham Road, the route directly behind the industrial estate could not be found so we had to instead cut across the field (path visible on map) to get to Gallows Lane and then onto Measham Road. It was a shame that we had to miss out the Ashby-de-la-zouch canal but the path was too overgrown to walk through with shorts on!...

Flat route, two stiles on the Cadeby to Newbold Verdon section, crosses farmland, through woods, village streets and Market Bosworth Country Park....

Market Bosworth—Hinckley

Hugh Hudson added Marhin two, a new walk from Market Bosworth to Hinckley

Walk this route

The route strikes out from the market place between the co-op and the imposing former bank. The path continues to Carlton where we leave 'The Round' and take the village street but veer off to avoid passing The Gate Hangs Well. The farm track from here is inviting but not the path which is again across the field to meet the road for a brief walk along the verge, do not cross before the road junction. We meet The Round again here but that heads east and we take a path northwards towards the hamlet of Belcher's Bar....

Ken

Walk this route

A mix of headland and cross field paths over cropped fields. Countryside starts along the track to Lockey Farm Boarding Kennels, the recorded path cuts across one field but there was no sign of use or reinstatement so I stayed on the track. Turning by the closed gates to the kennels we are still along the field headland but even after a dry January the ground was still soft here and again later in the walk there were muddy patches. Crossing a minor road the field edge is some distance so it's across the middle but again well walked, unless you are the first visitor after cultivation....

I would suggest taking the footpath from Sutton Cheney, south, and then rejoining the route along the much quieter Dadlington to Stapleton road - I will endeavour to check this route in the near future before finalising the proposed new route....

Generally a good route with the exception of the section on Measham Road between Measham and Snarestone....
