Group Visit to Breedon-on-the-Hill

I led a Guided Walk in Breedon-on-the-Hill for a visiting group recently.

They were the Leamington Friendship Circle, and they had made the journey from Leamington Spa.

When they arrived, I took them on a short stroll at ground level around the village.

But the main attraction was taking them in their coach to the top of the hill, and seeing the exhilarating views across Charnwood Forest and the Trent Valley towards the Peak District, followed by a visit to the wonderful St. Mary and St. Harduph Church.

Nowhere near as well known as it should be, this is one of the ecclesiastical gems of England. Nobody who visits can forget the amazing Anglo-Saxon sculptures and friezes housed in the church.

If you would like me to show your own group Breedon-on-the-Hill, do get in touch.
