Eaton, Scalford, Goadby Marwood and Melton on the Jubilee Way, 16th May 2018


Richard's pleasant linear 8½ mile walk took us down the Jubilee Way (mainly) from Eaton to Goadby Marwood, Scalford and back to Melton Mowbray via the Country Park.

The turnout was good for a mid-week walk in May but there was some difficulty with stiles.

First stop was Goadby Marwood's St Denys' Church, visited earlier in the year.
Lurking round the back and missed previously was the impressive 17th-century Goadby Hall.
Then it was on to Scalford's Church of St Egelwin the Martyr (one of Leicestershire's seven Ironstone Churches) for lunch ...

... and through the Country Park and back to the start.

But, just in case you are thinking about doing the walk yourself, be quick.  The Number 25 bus used to get from Melton to Eaton will soon be axed.
