From Long Close Gardens, Woodhouse Eaves (the last 2 weeks) we travel a few miles up the road and back into Leicestershire into Loughborough, the nearest big town in the area.
Queens Park is right in the centre of town and is a very popular place to visit at all times of the year because of its cafe, childrens play ground, lake, paths, seats, bandstand concerts and, beyond this lovely bridge the Loughborough Carillon, which is also the town War Memorial.
There are great views of the town and the countryside beyond from the viewing platform at the top of the Carillon and on the way up the inside some of the floors are devoted to a regimental musuem. The Town Carilloner plays concerst quite regularly through the summer months.
