A easy-access circular walk from the Dunston Fen picnic site, close to the village of Dunston in Lincolnshire. The walking route heads north to follow a simple circuit around the edge of Nocton Wood, following a stretch of the historic Roman Car Dyke, and enjoying far-reaching views across the fens. 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. The walk includes a few steady gradients and follows a mixture of quiet country roads, grass farm tracks and chalk farm tracks. There is a 1.5km stretch along a country road, so take care of traffic on this part. The tracks can get muddy after rain and are uneven in parts, but in dry periods the surfaces should be suitable for rugged disability buggies or rugged pushchairs. There are no obstacles (kissing gates, stiles or steps) and you will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock. 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 1.5 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, The White Horse is located at the eastern end of Dunston Fen Lane (alongside the River Witham) or The Red Lion is located in Dunston village.
