Leaving the council offices we head down London Road to turn on to Broom Leys Road and follow it through to Meadow lane and on to Oaks in Charnwood, turning towards Beacon hill. Following the road through to Swithland and on to the entrance to Bradgate Park (please take your time through the park as it does get busy with pedestrians etc). Stopping at the cafe in the centre of the park we'll prepare for the homeward leg with a nice cuppa char. Once in Newtown Linford, we will head over to Groby and Ratby picking up a quiet lane through to Thornton.

There is a bonus cafe stop at the reservoir should anyone need it, before heading back to Coalville via Ellistown and Hugglescote.
