A circular walk close to the village of Blankney in Lincolnshire. The walking route explores the local countryside, once part of Lincoln Heath and now a patchwork of arable farming and sections of woodland. This walk is published through a collaboration with North Kesteven District Council to inspire more people to enjoy the district's landscapes, ancient woodland, historic buildings and charming villages. The walking route is relatively flat, with only very gentle gradients. It follows mostly stone or grass farm tracks, with a couple of paths across grass fields and some stretches that can get muddy in winter or after periods of rain. Most of the land is arable, but you will cross one pasture twice (at the beginning and end) which is likely to be holding sheep (or other livestock). You will need to negotiate a couple of footbridges, a kissing gate and three stiles (the first two stiles have built-in dog gates and the third stile can be avoided completely by following a short stretch of quiet lane instead). Please remember the Countryside Code. Some paths are provided by kind permission of the landowner, please only use the waymarked paths. Where young stock may be present, please make sure your dog is under firm control in these areas. OS Map Explorer 272. Allow 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, there are pubs in two nearby villages; The Royal Oak in Scopwick and the Penny Farthing Inn in Timberland.

Excellent relaxed route. Farmer keeps the tracks well maintained and signage is clear. Highlights are the strategic benches along the route and the route notes, which offer a good history lesson on how the land use has changed. Memorial to the Lancaster crew and Hurricane pilot offers a good place to stop and think about the sacrifices our armed forces have made. The wildlife is abundant with a variety of butterflies, birds and wild plants.
