Braunstone

An 18.9 mile circular route from Braunstone out to Thornton with a circuit of the reservoir, following at times, the route of the Swannington railway, built by George Stevenson. The route follows NCR 63 on a mixture of disused rail trackbed, nature reserves and rural roads. Picturesque Thornton Reservoir has a small visitor centre, a sculpture trail, a woodland walk and a game fishery, while Martinshaw's mixed woodland is a visual treat and forms part of the National Forest.
