This walk is now full and no longer accepting reservations. We hope to run it again soon – sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of the page to stay up to date.

Join the Charnwood Forest Geopark team for a fascinating heritage walk around Thringstone, Whitwick and Swannymote. Using only the evidence from local placenames, we’ll take you back in time more than a thousand years to explore the British, Anglo-Saxon and Viking communities of Charnwood Forest. Places are limited and booking is essential.
