Footpath marker post in Stathern Wood
Footpath marker post in Stathern Wood
In Leicestershire the public footpath network is very well marked with stout wooden posts painted yellow. Stand at one post and you can usually see the next one in the distance. In this case you have to follow the arrow direction marker on the post and walk along the path into the wood. Stathern Wood is the most southerly point of a swathe of managed mixed woodland that stretches along the south-eastern escarpment on the edge of the Vale of Belvoir, all the way to Belvoir Castle in SK8133, taking in Plungar Wood, Barkestone Wood, Terrace Hills and Old Park Wood on the way. All the woodland is criss-crossed by forestry tracks, paths and bridleways and these marker posts come in very handy when the public rights of way cross the other tracks.
