Getting There

A circular walk close to the hamlet of Culverthorpe in Lincolnshire. The walking route takes you around the parkland of Culverthorpe Hall, with lovely views of the lakes and the hall itself along the way. 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. PLEASE NOTE: Whilst the bridges and stiles on this exact walking route are currently in good condition, on the alternative routes offered on the NKDC Stepping Out network from Culverthorpe some of the bridges and stiles are currently awaiting repair. Please take care if using these alternative routes. The walk includes only a couple of gentle gradients and follows a mixture of parkland driveways and grass footpaths, the latter of which can get muddy in winter and after rain. You will need to negotiate a kissing gate plus four stiles along the route. The stiles are quite tall with close fence surrounds, so all but the smallest dogs are likely to need a lift over. Almost all the paths are enclosed away from the parkland, but you will cross one paddock that may be holding horses. Dogs are welcome on these footpaths within the Culverthorpe estate, but you are asked to keep them on leads at all times. 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 248. Allow 30 minutes. If you are looking for refreshments, there are pubs in the villages of Silk Willoughby and Wilsford, just a short drive away.

The hamlet of Culverthorpe is located 5 miles south-west of Sleaford, 9 miles north-east of Grantham and 3 miles south-east of Ancaster. The walk starts and finishes from the Stepping Out car park near to Culverthorpe Hall. The nearest post code, which will take you to a road nearby, is NG32 3NJ. From this point, continue on the lane south then west and you will see a brown sign on your left, pointing to the Culverthorpe Walks car park on your right. The car park is open every day from 8am and closes at 7.30pm (Apr-Oct) and at 5pm (Nov-Mar).

This is a lovely little walk, great for little ones. The parking is free, but watch out as you could miss the entrance quite easily! lovely views of the lakes, birds and wildlife.
