Thornton Reservoir August 13th Sunday 
Location is south west of Coalville the easiest postcode is LE67 1AH , this is for the Bricklayers Pub which is where we can end up  for a beer. The car parking is by the side of the reservoir so head south from the Bricklayers along main street and turn left at the end of the village onto Reservoir road. The main parking is on the left as you down the hill and there is another area on the left after the dam.

I suggest we meet at the car park at 11AM

I will look at the weather coming up to the day - if its terrible I’ll send something saturday afternoon to say whats what

The walk is about 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on pace and how long we spend at each part of the reservoir. Depending on the temperature there are usually damsels and darter dragonflies on the side path and I will bring 2 macro set ups for people to try.

There is a tea shop in the garden centre opposite the car park.
The route for the walk is marked in red, parking in blue the Bricklayers in yellow.
