Getting There

A circular walk just outside Thorpe on the Hill in Lincolnshire. The route takes you on a peaceful journey, through open countryside and beautiful woodland. Tunman Wood is a Local Nature Reserve, which is recognized as being ancient woodland (an area where specific plant species are found) and supports diverse plant, bird and insect populations. 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 walk is relatively flat, with very little gradient. It follows a mixture of stone access tracks, farm tracks and woodland paths. The surfaces are generally very good, but a few stretches can be muddy after rain and in the winter months. There are no stiles, steps or gates on route, but you will need to negotiate one narrow squeeze gap. There is no livestock on route, but you are likely to see plenty of game birds. Between October and January there may be shooting activity in and around Tunman Wood. 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 271. Allow 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, the pub at the start of the walk is currently closed (correct 2017), but there are alternative pubs and cafes a short drive away in Thorpe on the Hill, Eagle or Swinderby. Nearby attractions include Doddington Hall and Gardens and Whisby Nature Park.

The walk starts and finishes alongside The Dovecote pub (currently closed), just off the A46 about 8 miles south-west of Lincoln. The post code LN6 9HN will take you towards the Halfway House roundabout on the A46. From this roundabout, take the exit signed to Swinderby and then turn immediately right into a small access road. This road leads you directly to the pub. Please do NOT use the pub car park, instead park along the access road itself.

HikingGreat!

Clearly marked out, nice mix of woodland and field. The one issue is that it starts very close to the dual carriageway, which makes it feel less remote than you might hope

Easy to follow waypoints & also well signed around the walk. Car was safe enough on the access road at side of building that was a pub.

Lovely Sunday walk with 8 year old son and 2 dogs. It has a good mixture of things to see like a tractor, horses and ponies, wheat in the field, poppies, woodlands with dens built inside, a little bridge and cloud watching on a nice day. Would recommend
