Summary

On the Trail of the Old Railway – Stokeswood Park and The Rally

This walk starts from a bus stop on Groby Road, opposite the Heathley Park Pub & Grill. Discover a little about Leicester’s first railway as you walk through Stokeswood Park and The Rally, following the route of the long disused Leicester and Swannington railway line to its terminus at West Bridge. 

Note: Stokeswood Park can feel quite isolated so walkers may prefer to walk here in company.
