The Great Central Way forms part of Sustrans national cycle network route 6 that runs from Dover to Inverness. Within the city it is now a 4 mile tarmac path with very minor gradients and it provides a route for people to follow for commuting, exercise and those who have an interest in nature.'

'Leicester has a history that is rich and diverse, but how do we begin to understand it? Our historic Churches can help us. They are important centres of interest, shedding a fascinating light on particular developments and events over the centuries. These Churches are here for you to visit them. Come as pilgrims, or come with an interest in religion, architecture, art or history.'  ALERT At Review, unable to raise the PDF originally reference here from Leicestershire Promotions.
