Newton Burgoland to Shackerstone; a Pub at Both Ends

Starting out from what is supposed to be the oldest pub in Leicestershire (The Belper Arms), this is a short, flat walk through a rural landscape. The length of the walk is ideal for an after-work pub stroll, as halfway round the walk there is another pub (The Red Lion at Shackerstone). Alternatively, if something a little longer is desired, the walk is designed so that halfway round, a train could be taken from Shackerstone to link up with the many walks from and around the Battlefield Centre at Shenton, before returning to finish off this walk. It is potentially muddy underfoot after heavy rain.

Lovely simple walk. Not too overgrown and dogs off the lead most of the time. Watch out for the geese at Point 12 in the paddock if you have dogs. We thought the field was empty but spotted them before the dogs did as they tend to huggle at the gate.

Some on lead walking in Shackerstone but mostly off lead in fields and on canalside.
