MOWS have developed the Wreake Valley Way which, as far as possible, follows the course of the former Melton Mowbray Navigation between Melton Mowbray and Syston. Our walk leaflets can be downloaded using the links below. To download, right click on the link and choose “Save page as…”

Please note that we are currently working to revise the Wreake Valley Way leaflets and also publish the Oakham Canal Trail which will provide an additional walk between Oakham and Melton Mowbray based on the former Oakham Canal.

If you are interested in walking all or part of these walks, we occasionally run guided tours, pointing out the sights and throwing in some historical detail along the way!  To register your interest, or to simply find out more about the walks, get in touch with Paul Dadford.
