There's some listed in Mountsorrel Good Neighbours group m.facebook.com/groups/MountsorrelGoodNeighbours/permalink/2359223391037535/

There's also some on the heritage site mountsorrelarchive.org/category/walks/

This was the approach to Sileby locks this week - easy to walk to from a few locations in Mountsorrel, leading to some great circular walks - although you might need your wellies/walking boots today.

Marshes and Nature reserve looking fabulous at the moment

I love to go on walks... but moved to the area the beginning of the first lockdown. If anyone can recommend some circular walks that would be fab! 😊

I took this photo this week on a walk along the river, the sky was beautiful

On Saturday afternoon we went for a walk to the top of Bond Lane. We walked through the woods heading towards Quorn. After approximately a hundred yards we turned left towards the road and crossed Swithland Lane to follow a track through the trees which bought us to a gate which lead to a path through a part of the quarry which has been turned into a nature walk. This is the view down into the quarry. It was quite amazing, considering it's on our doorstep.

We saw this and thought we should share. We know how everyone sets their watch by the 12.30 blast.
Message from the Quarry.
Due to excessive flooding in the quarry floor, today's blast will be delayed from the usual 12:30 timing to 15:00

Fabulous 👏👏👏

Congratulations Gill, a great project that really helped raise morale through lockdown, with a stunning quilt produced for the village, and raised money for local people. A real winner on all levels! 💗

So proud of what we all achieved by together x
