Upper Car Park
Off Beacon Road
Thursday 15th August 10.30-12.30pm
Join us for our summer ramble, to be held this year at beautiful Beacon Hill, near Woodhouse Eaves, Loughborough. In the summer we take it easy with no formal meeting and walk and talk in the sunshine (not guaranteed!) and maybe have a picnic if the weather is really kind.
Be prepared to walk up to the summit of Beacon Hill, which is one of the highest points in Leicestershire and take in the view of the county from the top. We will walk to the lower park meadow and visit the Native Tree Collection where we can enjoy listening to nature-themed poems and stories that have been written and recorded onto a number of listening boxes by local school children. We might find our way through the Rhododendron Labyrinth and we will certainly marvel at the giant wood carvings made by resident artist Peter Leadbetter. There is a lot more to Beacon Hill than first meets the eye and it is crammed with history and geological treasures.
There is no charge for this meeting but it does help if you book online to register your interest in joining us. Car parking charges do apply and there are two car parks. The upper entrance to the park is off Beacon Road, Woodhouse Eaves. For more information contact email@example.com
