A circular walk from the village of Navenby in Lincolnshire. The walking route gives you chance to explore the village itself, which is a conservation area with plenty of listed buildings, before heading out to enjoy the countryside to the south and east. You will follow a stretch of Lincoln Edge with far reaching views, part of the Viking Way long-distance path plus a section of the old Roman Road, Ermine Street. There are some beautiful architectural gems along the way, including a pretty church and the imposing Wellingore Hall. This walk is part of the Stepping Out network, published through a collaboration withNorth 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 just a few gentle slopes. It follows a mixture of field edge paths, cross-field paths, grass tracks, farm tracks, roadside pavements and quiet country lanes, with some stretches that can be muddy after periods of rain. You will need to negotiate two kissing gates and one simple gate, but there are no stiles on route. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock. There are a couple of road crossings that need care. 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 272. Allow 4 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, you will be spoilt for choice in Navenby at the beginning or end of the walk, with pubs, tea rooms, cafes, restaurants and takeaways. There are also a couple of pubs in Wellingore, about 2 miles into the walk.
