Grace Dieu Boulder
Also known as the Viaduct Boulder
The winding path through Gracedieu Wood is one of the loveliest walks in England. A most romantic rivulet accompanies the path, playing hide-and-seek among the trees and rocks.
The scenery about Whitwick, including Gracedieu Wood, is truly magnificent. If the weather should prove fine at Easter, friends from neighbouring and distant places would be delighted, we believe, with a visit to this romantic region. The rock and ravines and cascades will be highly gratifying to all who have a taste for the beauties of nature; and they will be especially delightful to the spiritually-minded follower of Jesus.
Beneath yon eastern Ridge, the craggy Bound,
Rugged and high, of Charnwood's forest ground,
Stand yet, but, Stranger! hidden from thy view,
The ivied Ruins of forlorn Grace Dieu.
The mountains, crowned with rocky fortresses
And sheltering woods secure thy happiness.
