Orb, yellow on brownJubilee Way (Leicestershire)

Leicestershire, Lincolnshire

34 km / 21 miles
The Way, devised to mark the Queen's Silver Jubilee, connects the Leicestershire Round at Burrough Hall Country Park with the Viking Way at Woolsthorpe by following a meandering course, passing through Melton Mowbray and across pasture and woodland and past old ironstone workings near Eaton before climbing through woods to Belvoir castle from where there are fine views over the Vale of Belvoir.

The waymarked Mowbray Way (9 miles and included on OS mapping) from Scalford on the Jubilee Way provides a second link to the Viking Way at Buckminster.

UPDATE September 2023:
An approximately 2km stretch of the Jubilee Way, and a cycle track which intersects it, is closed between Burton Lazars and Melton Mowbray during construction of the NE Melton Mowbray Distributor Road (NEMMDR) bypass. The work is expected to continue until 2025. Further closures, not yet announced by NEMMDR, are likely which will affect this LDP.
