A circular walk from the village of Aubourn in Lincolnshire. The walk takes you through open countryside and along good farm tracks to the south of the village, passing through arable fields and pretty strips of woodland. This walk is part of the Stepping Out network, published through a collaboration with the North Kesteven District Council to inspire more people to enjoy the district's landscapes, ancient woodland, historic buildings and charming villages. The majority of this walk is on permissive pathways where access has been granted to walkers by kind permission of the landowner. The pathways are CLOSED for a few days per year when game shooting is taking place- a noticeboard alongside the kissing gate near the start of the route will tell you if the paths are closed. The permission is for walkers (and dogs on leads) only, and does not extend to horses or cyclists. The walk is almost entirely flat and follows a mixture of village pavements, stone farm tracks and grass tracks, some of which can get very muddy after rain and in winter. There are no stiles or steps on route, but you will need to negotiate a kissing gate (twice). There is no livestock on route, but you are likely to come across plenty of gamebirds and you will also pass through the yard of Keeper's Cottage where gundogs may be present at times. 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 walk starts and finishes outside The Royal Oak in Aubourn. Nearby attractions include Hill Holt Wood, Whisby Nature Park and Aubourn Hall Gardens.
