Conkers and Moira Furnace

Walks in and Around Ashby Leaving Ashby by Kilwardby Street, proceed straight on to Moira. Going straight through Moira follow the road round a sharp right bend turning right after Via Devana to park at Conkers Waterside entrance.

Take the path at the end of the car park towards the railway tunnel, turning left to cross the small Conkers railway line and proceed down the track through the woods. After going under the bridge follow the path across the open field to the Ashby Woulds Heritage sign at the top of the slope. Bear left towards Measham.

At the T junction by the pool turn left, again following the Measham sign. Proceed straight on the Heritage Trail, crossing 2 road bridges, until you see a brown signpost on your left pointing towards Moira Furnace and Ashby Canal. Turning left, go down the steps. Turn right at the bottom, through the gateway and immediately left, following the public footpath sign and yellow arrows. After going through a metal gate take the right fork towards the Lime Kilns, following the yellow arrow around the edge of the kilns to join the towpath of the Ashby Canal.

Turn left and follow the towpath past the Furnace and along to the Lock where you will cross the main road through Moira. Continue along the towpath to arrive back at Conkers Waterside entrance.
