Route Outline

Circular walk in the rolling landscape of the Lincolnshire Wolds from Tetford passing through the villages of Somersby and Bad Enderby. The route is part of the Tennyson Trail which links a number of locations with the Poet Lord Tennyson. The start is North Road in Tetford where on-street parking is available near a school (grid ref.

Where the road bends left, go through the kissing gate on the right. Follow the enclosed path through another gate and then bear left through a gate and follow the stream (on your left) to return to East Road. Turn right and continue to a T-junction.
