Quickthorns is a cluster of short, stubby interlinked roads that serve a new housing estate. This road, that empties out into Southmeads Road, was once linked to the track ahead, which is known as Blackthorn Lane. Pedestrians passing through the gate and turning right would, within a couple of minutes, find themselves exiting Blackthorn Lane and joining Whitebeam Lane. Alternatively the tree-lined avenue ahead takes walkers and cyclists towards the northern-most end of Blackthorn Lane, that empties into Manor Road within about a mile. Since occasional official signs along the track ahead indicate that various fields, buildings and facilities belong to The University of Leicester, it would seem likely that this is a permissive path only.
