Route Description

Route 64 starts out on the Northamptonshire-Leicestershire border at the pretty town of Market Harborough where it travels north to Melton Mowbray.  For food lovers, Melton Mowbray is well worth a stop off.  Known as the home of the pork pie, it also has a farmers market evey Tuesday which dates back to 1077. The route continues until there is a gap around Bottesford where the route then continues onto Newark-on-Trent.
