*Burrough Hill Country Park
Size (acreage)85

'One of the most striking and historic features in the landscape of eastern Leicestershire. The well-preserved Iron Age hill fort dramatically crowns a steep-sided promontory of land reaching 210m (690 ft), with superb views. A prominent landmark and ready-made arena, the hill has long been a place for public recreation. As well as the grassy hilltop the country park offers diverse wildlife habitats and varied areas to visit ... Since 1970 Leicestershire County Council has leased this 35 hectare site from the Ernest Cook Trust.'

*Melton Mowbray Ramblers

'We organise regular walks in the East Midlands with occasional forays further a-field. All walks are under the supervision of a leader.'
