UK»England»Leicestershire»Beacon Hill Country Park

Beacon Hill Country Park: At 245m (802 feet), Beacon Hill is the second highest point in Leicestershire and the site of a Bronze Age hill fort. A toposcope indicates landmarks that can be seen from the summit.

There are more than 100 hectares of heath and woodland, including a collection of trees native to Britain. A newly-planted area includes a Woodland Trail featuring woodland crafts, a viewing platform and a shelter built of straw. The park is also home to the unusual sight of Manx Loghton sheep and alpacas, the latter are similar to llamas.
