yep 9th works for me - I'd prob stop over - nearest B &B or premier inn and make a weekend of it and try getting some urban exploration in too

Mike, if you are travelling down the motorway, there is a Travelodge rignt next to J22 Markfield turn off.

Close by in Coalville there is the Snibston Discovery Park http://www.leics.gov.uk/snibston.htm
It is well worth a visit if you are into Industrial history. They have changed their policy several times over the years regarding taking pictures of the exhibits, so if you planned to go, it would probably be best to contact them first regarding what is / is not allowed.

Also close by is Bradgate Park, which is the ancient home of Lady Jane Grey. Besides the ruins of the house, there is the opportunity to photograph the wild deer, that roam freely.

Regards - Steve

Dear all,

If anyone is interested i have a shepherds hut that could be available for the night. There are pigeon shooters using it in the day, but it is vacant for Saturday night. It has a wood burner, gas ring and a double bed, so is more glamping than camping. It would be 25 with as much wood as you need.

Could be an alternative to premier inn Mike, but there would be no full english or corby trouser press.

Cheers

Will

Just spotted this, I too might be interested in it.
I have friends in Market Harborough, so might do a double. Theirs at the weekend, and the farm on Sunday. Is it far from Harborough?

Very sensible Mike. there is Haynes hotel on Uppingham road which is the closest and by all accounts a little bit faulty towers in a good way. It is not in a particularly picturesque area, but would be a good base.

Offertonhatter, we are less than 30 mins from Harborough.

CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.
