Route Outline

This walk uses sections of the Leicestershire Round footpath to explore the 'Langtons' and starts from Stonton Wyville, a small village 11 miles south-east of Leicester. Parking is available near the starting point or on the minor road used in the final stage of the walk ((see last paragraph of this description). After parking, taking care not to inconvenience residents, take the footpath by St Denys Church. Head left towards the hedge line. Follow the hedge and when you reach a yellow post go right and then take the stile into the next field. Walk up the slope, following the right-hand side of the hedgerow and when you see a gap in it switch to the left-hand side. Continue on this path until you come out in a courtyard and then the Melton Road at Tur Langton (grid ref. SP715946).
