Walks in and around Quorn, Leicestershire

Corona Virus

The Quorn Walks leaflets were updated and published in early April 2020.

Before you consider attempting any of the walks detailed below, please be familiar with, and follow guidance from Government and Health Advisors.

 walks in and around Quorn village, Leicestershire Six walks are detailed, each self-contained and detailing a particular route. Two routes take you within the village using the network of paths connecting areas within Quorn. The remainder take you out of the village and usually into one or more of the surrounding villages. All start and finish at Quorn Cross (by pubs) and indicate where to find refreshments on route where possible. The type of terrain and bus stops are included to help those who may not wish to complete the entire route.

The walks were originally produced in 2004 as printed leaflets and were supplied as a packaged set at a cost of £1.00 for the set. Thanks went to Ivan Bexon, Phil Child, Peter Gamble, Bill Edwards, Richard Guise, Kathryn Paterson and Brian Williams for their help in the production.

Photos of Leicester Road and Station Road and other content courtesy of Don Wix from his book ‘Bygone Quorn in Photographs. Original design of the leaflets was by Richard Guise.

The walks proved to be very popular with residents and visitors alike. Inevitably, as time passed some details became outdated. In 2020 the Quorn Local History Group took up the challenge to update the leaflets and to make them available digitally. The intention is to retain the original concept of a series of walks as well as keeping as much as possible of the original content, and also to continue to keep them up to date.
