Until recently leaflets about such walks could be picked up at libraries etc. Now they are only available on the internet. Whereas a parish may have a four to five mile walk in a rural setting here in Wigston a circular walk through the countryside would be impossible. So we trespassed into adjacent parishes to make a ten mile walk starting from St Wistan’s Church and finishing at All Saints Church.'
