LEICESTERSHIRE ROUND IN PUB WALKS – DAY 8
TUESDAY 4TH AUGUST 2020 – THE WATERSIDE INN, MOUNTSORREL
I intend to take full advantage of the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme which saves up to £10 off meals and soft drinks at participating pubs and restaurants. After all – I want to help! 🙂 So two walks this week. This will also help me catch up on the lost mileage due to lock-down. So I’m heading off to the Waterside Inn in Mountsorrel for the next leg in this series of pub walks.
13:30-15:00– The Waterside Inn, Mountsorrel to Woodhouse
15:00-15:30 – Coffee Stop in Woodhouse
15:30-17:00 – Woodhouse to Mountsorrel
17:00-18:00 – Socially distanced dining at The Waterside Inn
Distance: 8 1/2 miles with just under 4 miles on the Leicestershire Round.
Today’s walk starts at the Waterside Inn, Mountsorrel. I head North along the River Soar for a while and then cut a corner to pick up the Soar again as it now meanders Westwards toward Quorn.
I then start South-West towards the edge of Woodhouse where I may stop for a coffee break. After coffee, I head South to pick up ‘The Round’ where I left off last time just South of Woodhouse Eaves. The route then goes Eastward and round the North end of Swithland reservoir. I continue on the Round until I return to the car at the Waterside Inn for some discounted pub grub.
