Morning Tour Around Hidden Leicestershire

[An image showing Morning Tour Around Hidden Leicestershire]A coach party from Leicester recently sampled one of my popular morning Coach Trips.

This time it was "Hidden Leicestershire Tour", designed to show parts of Leicestershire that are a little off the beaten track.

Having set out as usual from St. Margarets Bus Station, we travelled close to a number of deserted mediaeval villages, for example those at Foston, Blaby and Aldeby, and saw the mediaeval bridge at Enderby, stranded with neither road nor river.

After stopping at the well known Woodland Nurseries at Stapleton, we made our way through the area near Market Bosworth where Richard III lost his crown and his life.

Then we travelled through Whitwick, seeing the site of the castle and the haunted ruins of Grace Dieu Priory, before returning to Leicester through Charnwood Forest, passing the Knights Templar Chapel at Rothley along the way.

My Visitors' Book has comments such as "most interesting, even to a born in Leicester" and "always something new to learn".
