A linear walk from Wellingore to Waddington, forming the third part of the Ridges and Furrows Trail in Lincolnshire. The route follows a stretch of the Viking Way along Lincoln Edge, providing outstanding views across the local area, and visits charming villages along the way, including Navenby, Coleby and Harmston. ABOUT: Ridges and Furrows is a 30-mile (48km) arts and heritage trail, launched in 2018 and linking The National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford with Whisby Nature Park via the Lincoln Edge. With beautiful countryside, panoramic views, traditional villages, bustling towns and contemporary art venues, there's plenty to see and do. This guide is published through a collaboration with North Kesteven District Council. ACCESS: The walk has only a few steady gradients with nothing too steep. It follows a mixture of field-edge paths (which can be muddy), roadside pavements, enclosed paths (which can become overgrown at times) and farm tracks. Whilst most of the land is arable, you will cross three pastures that may be holding cattle. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and simple gates plus one stile (that has a gap suitable for medium-large dogs). OS Map Explorer 272. Please remember the Countryside Code. Allow 3 hours plus extra time for visiting attractions. FACILITIES: Refreshments on this part of the trail are available in the two pubs in Wellingore at the start of the trail or the many pubs and cafes in Navenby (1 mile into the walk), and there are also pubs in Coleby (3 miles into the walk) and Waddington (at the end of the walk). LOGISTICS: As a linear walk, you will need to make arrangements for your return journey. If you are walking the whole 30-mile trail in one go, it is possible to catch a train from Hykeham rail station (near the trail end) back to Sleaford rail station. There is some accommodation along the route, including The Joiners Arms in Welbourn (14 miles along), The Marquis of Granby in Wellingore (16 miles along), The Bell in Coleby (20 miles along) and The Horse and Jockey in Waddington (22 miles along). For individual trail parts, there are some useful bus routes, although connections and regularity do vary, so check the details carefully if you intend to rely on public transport. Check details via Traveline on 0871 2002233 or at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/busrailtravel. It may be better to use two cars, leaving one car at the end of the trail part ready for the return journey.
