Getting There

A easy-access circular walk from the village of Scopwick in Lincolnshire. The walking route follows a simple loop around the surrounding countryside, taking in a beautiful green lane and farm tracks between open fields. There is a beautiful sculpture to discover as well as plenty of wildlife to enjoy along the way. 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 is relatively flat, with just a few gentle slopes. It follows a mixture of grass tracks, farm roads and farm tracks. 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 1.25 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, The Royal Oak is located in Scopwick village or The Penny Farthing Inn is located in nearby Timberland.

The village of Scopwick is located on the B1188, about 12 miles north of Sleaford. The walk starts and finishes at the designated Stepping Out parking area, at the end of Vicarage Lane. From the B1188, turn onto Vicarage Lane and continue past the cemetery on your left. Immediately afterwards, you will see the designated parking area on your left, alongside the recreation ground.

A track around a field. Nice and quiet but nothing exciting.

Easy to follow route, slightly over grown in some areas but not an issue. Lots of places to pick black berries. Pleasant walk.

Not the best Lincolnshire countryside. First part no view at all. Chalk paths very hard going underfoot.

A lovely walk with my 5 year old son, just the right distance. Saw loads of wildlife along the way. Part of the track is very rocky but not enough to put you off.

Lovely little loop all on bridleways and farm track. The bridleways were a little muddy, to be expected this time of year. Most importantly the dogs loved it, no stiles just an easy short loop.

First to Review

Lovely walk, easy to follow. All on farm tracks or bridleways which were not too muddy but you do need good walking boots or wellies for this time of the year otherwise you will get in a mess! We loved it, dogs loved it, everyone's happy!
