I'd done a half-marathon not long before this, and therefore was extremely blase about 16 miles in the local hills - but this seemed incredibly tough! (It probably wouldn't now...). Some of the best walking in Leicestershire, on a good day, with Old John in Bradgate Park and Hill Hole the highlights.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
