Getting There

A circular walk from the village of Thorpe on the Hill near Lincoln in Lincolnshire. The walk performs a simple loop through woodland and open countryside with lots of hedgerow birds and lovely views back to the village. This walk is 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 fairly flat, with just a couple of gentle gradients. It follows a mixture of farm tracks, grass paths and woodland paths, some of which can get muddy, so good boots are a must. There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate two kissing gates. The vast majority of the farmland is arable, but you will cross one small grass paddock at the start of the route. You are likely to come across gamebirds. The route skirts Tunman Wood. Please note, between October and January there may be shooting activity in and around the wood. 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 271. Allow 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, the Railway Inn pub is located just north of the village or there is another pub in nearby Eagle. Nearby attractions include Doddington Hall and Gardens and Whisby Nature Park.

Thorpe on the Hill is located about 6 miles south-west of Lincoln and just one mile north of the A46. The walk starts and finishes on the footpath that begins on Main Street. Approximate post code LN6 9BG. If you are coming by car, there is no village car park, so please find a safe roadside parking space, with respect for the local residents. Main Street is too narrow to park along, but there are usually some roadside spaces on Lincoln Lane. If you are coming by public transport, the village bus stops are located on Fosse Lane. For information on bus transport, call Traveline on 0871 2002233 or visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/busrailtravel.

Very flat despite the name and very muddy too although it was December and had been raining the day before. Would strongly recommend walking boots. First part was very peaceful through some big flat fields along a small river but you could hear cars on the A46 so isn’t dead silent. Once you get to Tunman Woods which is around halfway there’s a nice trail to follow that goes a bit off route. Definitely worth taking a bit of a detour through it as the woods are very beautiful especially in winter. Great for viewing nature and getting a good look at different types of trees. End of the walk was like trying to wade though chocolate gateaux but had a nice farm at the end with friendly sheep. Took a bit less than 2 hours but that’s because we went a bit off route.

Nice circular walk, great for the dogs and well sign posted, can make it shorter if wanted. A little muddy, and would think it would get more muddier after some more rain.

Very good short walk. You walk though the farm lane and woodlands and the village. There is not a car park. Dogs loved the walk.
