Thursday 28th October 2021, with Eddie. 7.25 miles, and about 560 feet of ascent and descent.
A mild dry morning, mostly cloudy, as we set off from close to the Bakers Arms. We turned right - there’s a sign for the Leicestershire Round - and followed the track downhill past the pub car park and some new houses.
We reached the ford, and crossed the bridge on our right and a stile into the field where we started the climb up to the trig point.
Not muddy today, and easy to follow - basically head uphill… we were slightly to the left of the official footpath, but this did avoid a muddy patch.
Onwards and upwards, with the view opening out as we climbed. We followed the route of the Leicestershire Round through Stonton Wyville,
then across fields to Glooston.
The pub is for sale, and looks a likely candidate for another expansive house.
Still following the LR we walked along minor road to Cranoe.
At this point we left the Round and took the road towards Stonton Wyville.
After about a mile at the point where a small road joins from the right, we took a footpath to the left. which led us over a very rickety stile, but straight up to the to- again.
From the trig point we retraced our route back to Thorpe Langton.
