The 1806 blast furnace, which is an Ancient Monument, is steeped in history and is set in a wonderful country park alongside the Ashby Canal. The Joseph Wilkes barge operates at 11am, 12noon, 1pm and 2pm, and the trip along the canal is both leisurely and relaxing, taking in the local wildlife and scenery.

Andrew Head

Breathing in other peoples tobacco smoke, known as second hand smoke, is known to cause a range of disorders from minor eye and throat irritation to heart disease and lung cancer. Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of second hand smoke which can increase the risk of cot death, glue ear, asthma and other respiratory disorders. Evidence shows too that children growing up in an environment where they see others smoking are up to 4 times more likely to become smokers themselves with most smokers starting the habit before they are 16 years old, some as young as 10 or 11 years old. Restricting smoking to a specific room, smoking near an extraction fan or open window offers little real protection as the pollution from second hand smoke lingers on carpets, furnishings and walls which absorb the toxins from tobacco smoke and then release them back into the air, smoking in cars exposes babies and young children to even higher levels of toxicity. For further information pick up a leaflet from the Council Offices or your local library and make the promise now to Step Right Out* and keep it smoke free for your family. If you want help to stop smoking call 0845 045 2828 for free confidential advice. * Step Right Out is the smoke free homes and cars scheme in place across Leicestershire as part of the work of the Tobacco-free Leicestershire and Rutland alliance. Launched across the County in April, the scheme is designed to protect children and young people from the harm caused by second hand smoke.
