Welcome to the historic village of Smeeton Westerby. The village is situated four-tenths of a mile south of the Clock Tower in Kibworth Beauchamp where Smeeton Road leads you past Kibworth High School to Main Street, Smeeton Westerby. Although there are no designated car parks in the village, a few parking places can usually be found in side streets near the start of your walk around the village. The main road through the village is narrow and winding with footpaths mainly only on one side of the road. Please be careful when you need to cross the road where the footpath continues on the opposite side, especially near the curved sections in the road. Smeeton Westerby was originally two separate villages, Smeeton and Westerby. Smeeton was originally known as Simitone but before that Smeeton had an Anglo-Saxon metalworkers’ settlement origin – from ‘smiths tun’. Westerby has Viking origins – from the Old Norse name of Vesterbyr (West Farm) to the west of Smeeton, possibly founded around the 9th century. The full route takes about 1½ hours
