Getting There

A circular walk from the village of South Rauceby in Lincolnshire. The walking route performs a simple route around the edge of Rauceby Park and through peaceful arable farmland, providing a wonderful escape and reminders of the past. 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 a few gentle gradients throughout but there is nothing too steep. It follows a mixture of roadside pavements and stone or grass farm tracks, plus one path across an arable field. Some of the tracks are uneven, rutted and can be muddy in winter or after periods of rain. There are no gates, stiles or steps on route 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 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, the Bustard Inn is at the start and the end of the walk in South Rauceby. Nearby attractions include Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre.

South Rauceby village is located about 3 miles west of Sleaford. The walk starts and finishes on Main Street, outside the Bustard Inn. If you are coming by car, there is roadside parking along the length of Main Street. Approximate post code NG34 8QG. If you are coming by public transport, there are bus stops on Main Street very close to the start point.

This was a great route however we tried to avoid walking across the field by walking around the edge but this was extremely overgrown. The pub is well worth a visit too.
