Led by Mel. Norma, Steph, Terry, Barrie, Vera, Gordon, Maureen, Phil, Andy, Tim, Jackie, Tommy, Marion, Chris and me. Rolling countryside, wide views, fine weather with short showers. Around 7.5 miles.
We follow the Leicestershire Round uphill, past a farm, then down through the edge of Horse Close spinney and uphill past Othorpe House and on almost to the road into Cranoe.
Here we leave the LR and turn right and follow the path north and up Church Hill.
The path continues north for a mile or so along this ridge - protected from the wind by a hedge.
It's a short walk back to the cars, and we call in to the recently reopened Bewicke Arms Tearoom for lunch.
