code: LL20 7HE.
start: 69 miles. Journey time: 85 minutes
facilities are available, if open, at least four times during the
course of the
route but not at the start. They are however, fairly evenly spread
an unusual one, unlike any organised one that Iíve been on or led. Itís
all demanding but packed with interest, with short stops on the way
take in some of the more interesting features. We will visit the
grounds of Staunton Harold Hall, Breedon on the Hill Church,for its
Saxon carvings, Melbourne, Staunton Harold Reservoir and Calke Abbey,
to explore its fascinating outbuildings.
