Coal Tips to Country Parks

Thornton, Leicestershire

Coal Tips to Country Parks

The route passes through former coal mining sites which have now been transformed into woodlands and country parks, and by the picturesque Thornton reservoir. Ancient woodlands and historic sites link the old and the new of the developing Forest.

This leaflet can be used in conjunction with OS Explorer 245 (The National Forest) and Landranger 140 (Leicester, Coventry and Rugby).
