County/Area - Lincolnshire

Author - John Coombes

Length - 4.5 miles / 7.3 km

Time - 2 hours 20 minutes

This circular walk takes in the wonderful Lincolnshire countryside with its open space and fresh air with the light fragrance of the wild flowers. The walk just touches the outskirts of Holton le Clay, then picks up part of the old disused East Lincolnshire railway line back into the village of New Waltham. The beauty of this walk is it can be extended to Louth and or Holton le Clay and beyond. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. This applies in England. Wales & Scotland have different and stricter rules which do not allow walking away from home.
