Tucked away behind the busy Aylestone Road lies the hidden peace and tranquility of Leicester’s Riverside Park, including the Grand Union Canal and Towpath, the Great Central Way cycle, equestrian and walking track, the River Biam and Soar and the Aylestone Meadows.

What an absolutely stunning building situated in the middle of Desford in Leicestershire. It never ceases to amaze me how many wonders there are in the heart of the British Countryside.
