Ashby Woulds 11m Circular Walk
Distance: 11 miles
Time: 4 hours
Terrain: Good - cyclepath, woodland, road, meadow
Starting location: Shellbrook, SK348166
Map: Explorer 245 (National Forest)
My last walk: 12 August 2012
This walk starts and finishes at Shelbrook, just outside Ashby, and follows the Ivanhoe Way, which goes to Moira (ice-cream, coffee, loos and other walking essentials available at Moira Furnace).
It continues to Donisthorpe and Measham, leaving the Ivanhoe Way at Oakthorpe and through a potentially beautiful new part of National Forest to Willesley and back to Shelbrook.
