Burrough Hill – 6.7 Miles – LE14 2QZ.
Burrough Hill is one of the most historically important sites in East Leicestershire. With a view stretching for miles (On a clear day it is said that you can see Beacon Hill and Boston Stump) it would have been a very strong defensive position. While you explore the earthworks, remember that they were built centuries before the invention of the mechanical digger. Thousands of tonnes of earth had to be moved using simple tools, often little more than hands and sticks.
