Leicester Ramblers Coach Trip
Edgehill (Warwickshire) Sunday, 18th November

November’s destination is the tiny hamlet of Edgehill in Warwickshire. This is only about an hour’s drive away so there will be plenty of time for walking and exploring the countryside.

Edgehill sits on the ironstone escarpment which overlooks the site of the Battle of Edgehill (1642), the first major battle of the English Civil War.There are extensive views over the plains to the north and ancient woods on the sides of the escarpment.

The hamlet is home to the Castle Inn, pictured above, with its unusual octagonal Tower. It was built in 1742 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Civil War battle and erected on the spot where King Charles I raise his standard before advancing on the Parliamentary forces on the plain below. Nowadays it a pub & restaurant owned by the Hook Norton Brewery.
The coach departs at 8.00 am from outside the Premier Inn on Narborough Road, Leicester. Free parking is available courtesy of the Premier Inn. The coach fare is £14 per person. Passengers can also be picked up from Leicester City centre. An optional pub meal is available before the coach returns home, at additional cost.
There will be a choice of 3/4 walks varying in distance and difficulty.

Booking is essential. To get more details or book a place please contact the Coach Secretary, John Rhodes, on 0116 2402077 or by email at johnrhodes15@btinternet.com
