Summary

A Walk in Castle Hill Country Park – Castle Hill Quarter

Castle Hill Country Park is located right on the edge of Leicester. This walk starts from the Beaumont Lodge Shops on Astill Lodge Road in Beaumont Leys. We take a pleasant stroll through the grasslands and leafy woodlands of the historic ‘Castle Hill’ quarter to enjoy this piece of local countryside. History and wildlife leaflets of Castle Hill Country Park are available to download on Leicester City Council’s website.

Note: Paths in Castle Hill Country Park are not surfaced. The terrain is soft and uneven and can be muddy in the wetter seasons. Suitable footwear is recommended. Walkers may prefer to walk in company as this area can feel a little isolated.  

This walk is available on GoJauntly.  Some free routes have been created on GoJauntly by volunteers for Leicester City Council. GoJauntly is a free community based app which can be downloaded to your smart phone. There you can find local walks to follow, and even create some of your own.
