All of the woodlands owned by the Forestry Commission across the Lincolnshire Limewoods are covered by the Countryside and Rights of Way (CROW) Act 2000 which gives a right of public access on foot.
Access improvements have been made to several of the Forestry Commission woods, by creating larger parking areas and including surfaced areas to allow easy access around the vehicle barriers that prevent unauthorised access. Surfaced forest tracks exist in a number of woodlands, and many rides have been widened to improve their accessibility in all weathers and to make them more inviting. You can find out more about this project on the new routes page.
Goltho Wood, owned and managed by the Woodland Trust was planted between 2008 and 2010 as a new community woodland for the Limewoods area. It has open public access, a surfaced route leading up to a picnic area and several areas to explore.
The Limewoods Project has produced Site Guides giving more information on places you are welcome to visit. Seven woods and nature reserves are included in this series, as well as abbeys and other visitor attractions.
