This route actually starts just outside Ashby-De-La-Zouch at the junction of the A42, from here take the A512 towards Loughborough and after just over 1 mile take the left turning towards Hathern on the B5324 and enjoy the next 7 1/2 miles (Watch out for the 40 limit).

At the junction with the A6 turn left and then right and onto the glorious A6006 towards Melton Mowbray. This is one of my all time favourite roads in the UK.

When you reach Melton Mowbray, at the 1st set of traffic lights turn right and follow this road through a few more sets of lights until you have gone over the bridge, after the bridge you will come to another set of traffic lights (opposite is a petrol station) turn left here onto the B6047 and follow this road to Market Harborough.
