Leicestershire Border Walk

319 km / 198 miles

Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Warwickshire
The Leicestershire Border Walk uses public footpaths and other ancient highways to closely follow the county boundary. This has created a walk of about 200 miles which is divided into 15 walkable sections of between 8 and 17 miles. The break points were selected to offer a public transport link between the start and finish of each walk. With careful planning and dependant on your home location you may be able to complete the walk without the use of private transport, see Traveline for transport information. The sections start in the north east of the county at Bottesford and go anti-clockwise. Because there are no detailed written instructions you should find it possible to start at any location and, if you wish, walk the route clockwise. The route website is linked below.

A digital mapping file derived by the LDWA is available for members to download on the links below.

The Border Walk makes a much longer circuit than the earlier Leicestershire Round that at about 100 miles keeps well within the county.
