If you visit the Priory, could you please take all of your litter home with you - quite a lot has been dumped since the COVID-19 lockdown unfortunately. There is a bin at the Bullís Head car park for dog litter bags.
Thank you

If you're not sure how to get to the Priory:

Brown tourist signs direct you off the A512 Loughborough - Ashby road to The Bull's Head car park LE67 8LR.

Please park at the top end, furthest away from the pub.

 

Follow the signs to the Priory, which will lake you along a path which goes under the old railway arch and turns left to go gently down the hill.

 

Just before the stream, you turn left and go under the huge railway viaduct.

 

To your left is a large disused quarry which is a dangerous area to wander into.

 

Where the path goes across the bed of the old Canal, you turn right through the gate and along the line of the canal until you reach another gate which leads you into the Priory grounds.
