Glenfield

Walking through Time 1

.........................................................................................................

The group usually meet at 10am on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

Members take turns to research an area of interest and plan, where possible, a circular route of between 4 and 6 miles and find out facts about the history, buildings, geology etc along the route. Group members will often pair up to do the research together to present to the group.

Many of our history walks can be found for all to share on the Glenfield U3A ‘walks’ page. These are printable routes with the history attached.

Interspersed with our own walks we often take advantage of local ‘professional’ guided walks and/or talks.

North West Leicestershire provides huge scope for our group with an abundance of interesting countryside of historical importance; much of which is in the National Forest.

The Walking Through Time group have had a number of interesting visits throughout the year of 2019, with a guided tour of Abbey Pumping station in March.

Other visits this year include Staunton Harold in January, Ibstock in April and Oadby in May and a guided tour of Groby Old Hall in July.

The first walk of 2019 was a 4 mile circular walk around the Staunton Harold estate and Dimminsdale Woods.
