Heritage Village Walk

Short heritage walk around the village on Saturday 4th September starting at Sir John Moore Foundation at 11 am

Our heritage boards will be around the village from 4th to 19th September for Hello Heritage  (open heritage events supported by North West Leicestershire District Council).  To launch this event there will be a guided walk around the boards with added village heritage info.  We will start at the Foundation at 11 am on the 4th and end at the Black Horse.  Children are welcome.  Part of the walk will be on footpaths but it is possible to avoid these (but you will miss 2 boards!)
