Quorn (A Guided Walk in Quorn)

“Quorn” is a Guided Walk devised and led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours, around this delightful village in Leicestershire.

These stolls are a most enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History.

The starting point is Quorn Cross, in the centre of Quorn, on the corner of the old A6 and Station Road, beside the bus shelter.

Quorn is situated in the narrow stretch of land between the crags of Charnwood Forest and the River Soar.

The route takes in most of the old village, including the lovely River Soar and its tributary the Buddon Brook. Along the way there are many houses and cottages built of the local Mountsorrel granite.

During the walk, Colin discusses the importance of Hugo Meynell, who lived at Quorn Hall in the 18th century and formulated the rules for fox hunting. It was he who established the world famous Quorn Hunt.

Colin also leads a walk by the river and canal locally, entitled “Waterside Quorn and Barrow-upon-Soar”.
