The walk then rises to the Aeropark before going a short distance along the airport trail then drops down to Hemington, passing the war memorial and the ruins of the 14th Century Parish Church, before taking field paths to return to Lockington. This walk has steady inclines but no stiles - depending on the day the airport trail can be quite windy.
