Friday 17th July. Around Ashby, starting ar the Hood Park Gates

A similar walk to the last one only that was 5 months ago. We are limited to 6 people because of the virus. We walked through Hood Park and took the footpath out to Smisby Road just beyond the biscuit factory estate. We crossed Smisby Road and walked up Rotherwood Drive into the Bovis estate where we turned left along Sherbourne Drive into Canterbury Drive and then Rouen Way. Part-way up the hill we took the path which goes down past the old flour mill except we turned right and followed the track out onto Burton Road opposite Hill Street. We turned right and followed the road till we reached Churchill Close and turned left. At the end of the cul-de-sac we took the path out to the playing field and turned left into Highfields Close. From there we crossed the Moira road and took the footpath to the allotments. Here we stopped for a chat with Estelle before going to Joan's garden for morning coffee/tea. The weather held up well.
