Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Welland Valley Tour (A Coach Trip in Leicestershire)

"Welland Valley Tour" is one of the many Coach Trips devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These trips are an enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History.

It is one of the morning trips, which stay close to Leicestershire, and are very popular with people who do not want to be out all day.

This trip investigates the valley of the lovely River Welland, one of the rivers which flow Eastwards into the North Sea via The Wash.

The coach leaves St. Margarets Bus Station, in Leicester City Centre, at 9.30am, returning at about 2pm.

The format for these morning tours is that one stays on the coach for most of the time, while Colin gives his usual commentary. About halfway round, however (usually about 11.30am), a stop is made at a nice location, where tea, coffee, cakes etc can be bought.

The Welland flows through some very attractive towns and villages, notably Market Harborough, a busy market town with outstanding parish church; Stamford, a lovely stone built town which is one of the showplaces of England; and Spalding, famous for its tulip fields.

And the countryside is very beautiful.
