This is a circular easy access walk from the village of Nocton in Lincolnshire. This route highlights the village, including artwork, the cricket ground and church, as well as exploring a wide stretch of countryside to the east, with patches of pretty woodland, open fields and a section of the historic Car Dyke. This walk is published through a collaboration with the North Kesteven District Council to inspire more people to enjoy the landscape, ancient woodland, historic buildings and charming villages. The walk is relatively flat and follows a mixture of village pavements, tarmac access tracks, grass footpaths and stone farm tracks. The paths are all well-made but can be muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There may not be any livestock or obstacles on route. With this in mind, the route would be suitable for rugged push chairs or rugged disability buggies when the paths are dry. Please remember the Countryside Code. Some paths are provided by kind permission of the landowner, please only use the way marked paths. Please keep dogs under control where young stock may be present. OS Map Explorer 272.

Lovely views and something different to look at along the way ... shame you can’t get into the Old Nocton Hall Military Hospital to explore...
