Length: 5 mi • Est. 2 h 29 m
A circular walk from the small Lincolnshire village of Woolsthorpe by Belvoir, which sits on the county border with Leicestershire. The village is most famous for the nearby Belvoir Castle and the impressive 19th century fortress dominates the hilltops here and is visible for most of the walk, giving it a strange fairytale-like feel. The route explores the village then moves on to a stretch of the Grantham Canal towpath before returning via an ancient lane and a stretch of the Viking Way. The route has just a few gentle inclines and the paths are a mixture of pavements, stone lanes/paths and grass towpaths/field paths, the latter of which will be muddy after wet weather. The final large hillside pasture you cross is used for grazing cattle so take care with dogs at this point. There are several gates plus two stiles, both of which have gaps alongside that will be suitable for most dogs. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours. Show more

Length: 2.7 mi • Est. 1 h 20 m
A circular walk from the Lincolnshire village of Swinstead passing through fields and chalk pasture to reach the West Glen River. A climb up the opposite side of the valley is followed by a short section following The Drift, an ancient highway, before a return trip across the valley. The route has several climbs and descents including one very steep climb up through an uneven rocky path within woodland so take extra care here. The paths will be very muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are six stiles on route and all of these have enclosed fence surrounds so dogs may need a lift over. The large pasture alongside the West Glen River is used for grazing sheep and the fields are used for rearing game birds so keep dogs under close control. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours. Show more
