#1 - Covenham Reservoir and Louth Canal
Louth, Lincolnshire, England

Length: 6.3 mi • Est. 2 h 42 m
This steady circular walk takes in two expanses of water: the Covenham Reservoir, the largest stretch of inland water in Lincolnshire, and a section of the old Louth Canal, a twelve mile inland waterway dug to connect Louth to the Humber, south of Grimsby. It starts in the village of Fulstow, which sits on the meridian and has a pub, the Cross Keys. The walk is relatively flat and easy-going, but you should allow the best part of three hours to complete it. There is at least one pasture that may be holding cattle so take good care on this stretch, particularly in the Spring when the cattle may be freshly turned-out or when there may be calves. Bring binoculars for bird-spotting on the water, and a picnic and water if you are walking in the middle of the day. This is a difficult walk to get wrong navigation-wise - just follow the signposts with a boat icon.Show more
