  • Walking The Edge

    This delightful footpath walk around the edge of the village of Barrow upon Soar mainly follows recognised footpaths, with excellent views of the River Soar, the Midland railway, and the Millennium Park sundial. You will see a new woodland tract and experience an area known to locals as “mud alley”. Suitable footwear is essential, i.e. walking boots or wellingtons, as it can be wet in parts and, in one place, pretty muddy!!!

  • Walking the Jitties

    Barrow upon Soar is criss-crossed with jitties. Some are easy to find: others are more difficult to spot. This guide is to show you where to find most of them. They are Rights of Way, so you are not trespassing.
