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.

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.
