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. 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 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.
