A circular walk around the Bloxholm estate, close to Ashby de la Launde in Lincolnshire. The walking route follows paths and tracks on a simple circuit around the old estate, taking in both farmland and woodland, and with fine views of the old walled gardens and hall. This walk is part of the Stepping Out network, 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 walk is almost entirely flat, with one steady climb towards the end. It follows a mixture of farm tracks, woodland paths, quiet lanes and one stretch across a grass field. Whilst the surfaces are generally good, there are some stretches that can be muddy after periods of rain and in winter. Dogs are welcome, but the landowner requests that they remain on leads. The bulk of the walk has no obstacles or livestock, but the final stretch uses a permissive path to cross a grass pasture (which may be holding cattle or sheep) and includes three stiles (one with no dog gap) and a kissing gate. If this permissive path is closed (due to farm requirements) or you wish to avoid the field, there is a longer alternative ending which avoids all stiles and livestock but does include 0.7 miles along the narrow grass verge of a B-road. 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.

Great walk with dogs & children. Lots of gates but pretty flat & easy going for moderate to low fitness

Be very careful in that grass pasture in winter at the top end near the gate - I sank nearly to my knees in mud and had a struggle to get out
