Exploring Leicester – Part 5: Leicester Forest East

After last weeks venture over to the other side of town to explore Stoneygate, we decided to keep things a bit closer to home with a trek around Leicester Forest East, which our house sits on the borders of. There's not a lot to the area really, with clusters of houses built up around the main road out of Leicester merging into one swell, but we could see on the map there was some green space tucked away at the back. With our backpack loaded with supplies/buscuits and suitable bobble hats on, we set off down the main road, over the M1 and into LFE.

The parks themselves weren't massive but nice and hidden away, which was great for me and Rufus to explore into the corners and find new lands.
