Mixture of open paddocks with cattle and woodlands. The top of Billa Bara Hill has a lot if fine contour details and good views over Leicestershire. Course have been planned to avoid the worst of the head high nettles but you will still encounter nettles and bramble as some of the paths are getting over grown. Long and medium courses will have road crossings to access the areas north west of Stanton.
