Getting There

A circular walk from the village of Bracebridge Heath, near Lincoln in Lincolnshire. The walk takes you along the ridge of Lincoln Edge and part of the Viking Way, with fine views over the Witham and Trent Valleys, before descending to follow a long stretch of riverside path along the River Witham. 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 has several gradients along the way, including a fairly steep climb back onto Lincoln Edge. It follows a mixture of field edge paths, grass hillside paths, grass riverbanks and roadside pavements; some stretches can be muddy (and slippery) after periods of rain or in the winter. There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate one kissing gate and a bridle gate. You will not be sharing the 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 3 hours. Nearby places of interest include the Natural World Centre (at Whisby Nature Park) and Hill Holt Wood. If you are looking for refreshments, there are several pubs within Bracebridge Heath.

The village of Bracebridge Heath is located 2 miles south of the city of Lincoln, on the A15. The walk starts and finishes at the Village Hall car park on Red Hall Farm Lane. Approximate post code LN4 2LB. If you are coming by public transport, there are bus stops on the A15 in Bracebridge Heath near the start of the walk, or there is a bus stop outside All Saints Church (Waypoint 4) on Brant Road in Bracebridge. For information on bus transport, call Traveline on 0871 2002233 or visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/busrailtravel.

slightly deceiving walk. only half is a countryside walk the rest is a slightly monotonous walk along main roads and pedestrian paths. the views are great along the Vikings walk so would suggest giving that a try instead

Good walk, feel like your out in the countryside but your close to civilisation Steep hill down and up but well worth it, good view on the ridge. Take duck food as they come out of the water to you as soon as you step into the woods
