A word of warning. The walk descriptions are not detailed enough to guide you - please take a map. The batteries never run out, and you always have a signal. Oh, And don't take left or right as gospel!

Smeeton Westerby and Fleckney (Saddington) Tunnel

Almost 4 miles.
Started from Bridge 72 on GU Canal.  

Along tow-path on right of canal, on top of tunnel, across Saddington - Kibworth Road,  down to the tow-path on the left as far as the next bridge,

 leave the canal through a hand gate, turn left and left again  across the bridge, walk up through Mill Field Wood, 

across two fields, across Saddington - Kibworth Road, along Mill Lane into Smeeton W.  Footpath between hedges, then through horses' field to the church.  Over the road and along the path through the allotments. 

 Across road and through the ginnel (large alsatian barking in garden). Followed the path past the houses and up to the canal. Along towpath to the bridge.

Weather fine, warm but dull. The sun made a feeble effort to shine, but not for long. Dry underfoot.

Map and details

Now to find an extra four miles or so for a group of us to do together!
I did this walk from Smeeton with Harry on July 17 2010.
