The Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire is an excellent destination for walkers though it is often ignored despite having a fine network of well-marked footpaths. This walk aims to rectify the problem! This walk starts from Haxey and explores the area to the north of the village and includes the Turbary Nature Reserve. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. Travel restrictions for exercise in Wales and Scotland will be lifted in early July.
