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, is recognised 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 gamebirds. 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.
