Walking Close to Uppingham

Walking Close to Uppingham

by: Clive Brown:
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide focuses on Eye Brook near Uppingham with nine varied and interesting circular walks, mainly about 6 miles in length. Uppingham, half way between Leicester and Peterborough is a charming mixture of redbrick and stone with little modern development. The town dates from the early middle ages. The school, founded in 1584 by Archdeacon Robert Johnson, still uses its original building behind the church as part of its extensive campus.

Eye Brook rises cloe to the village of Tilton on the Hill and wriggles its way to the Welland close to Corby, never very full or fast flowing. It marks the border between Leicestershire and Rutland for much of the way before going through Eyebrook Reservoir.

The walk locations are:
Blaston, Blaston Hollows and Horninghold - 7 miles
Eyebrook Reservoir and Lyddington - 5 miles
Uppingham and Stoke Dry Wood - 6 miles
Hallaton, Cranoe and Hare Pie Bank - 7 miles
Great Easton, Blaston and Nevill Holt - 7.5 miles
Wardley Hill - 5.75 miles
Hallaton and Crackbottle - 7 miles
Uppingham, Bisbrooke, Seaton and Lyddington - 6.5 miles
Alexton and east Norton - 7.5 miles
