Length: 6.3 mi • Est. 3 h 19 m
A circular walk starting and ending at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre. The walk takes you along the Ashby De La Zouch Canal, across fields including the spot where Richard III is thought to have been slain, along some quiet roads around Shenton and across the Battlefield Line preserved railway. The route is generally fairly flat with just one steep incline from Shenton Station to the finish. The paths across the fields were well defined and showed very little mud even after a good fall of rain the day before. The canal towpath also had very little mud. You will need to negotiate many stiles and gates. There are steps down to the canal at Sutton Cheney Wharf and steps up and down as you cross the former railway line. You are likely to come across cows in one field, sheep in several other fields and a horse by the railway line, so take care with dogs. There are toilet and cafe facilities at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre, Sutton Cheney Wharf and Shenton Station.Show more
