Getting There

PLEASE NOTE: Users have reported that the postcode provided NG32 3NJ is not correct for this route - if you are driving there & using Apple maps, search for “Culverthorpe Hall” & follow until you see the brown signpost for parking. 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. A circular walk close to the hamlet of Culverthorpe in Lincolnshire. The walking route takes you around the parkland of Culverthorpe Hall and out into the surrounding farmland estate, with lovely far-reaching views and plenty of wildlife 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. The walk includes several moderate gradients throughout and follows a mixture of parkland driveways, farm tracks and grass footpaths plus one path across an arable field and one short stretch of quiet lane. Some stretches can be very muddy after rain and in winter. Most of the paths are through arable land or enclosed away from pastures, but you will cross two pastures (that are likely to be holding sheep or other livestock) and one paddock (that may be holding horses). You will need to negotiate several footbridges and gates plus seven stiles (five of these have tight fence surrounds so all but the smallest dogs are likely to need a lift over). Following the optional shortcut and the alternative ending described within the guide, will avoid the livestock and will reduce the stile count to one (which has an under-gate gap alongside, which dogs up to Labrador-size should squeeze through). 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 1.5 hours. 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).

WalkingNo shade

It was a good walk but not much for a little kid as some areas were difficult to go through. Also it was hard to find a place to stop and have a break or snack.

Nice little walk, with pleasant views. Shame about dogs having to be kept on the lead though.

lovely walk with lovely views. Was very wet and muddy when I went but all parts were still passable. Great for dogs but best to keep them on a lead at all times
