Discover the Limewoods on new countryside walks
Enjoy a day out in the countryside this summer with two new routes in the popular Lincolnshire Limewoods Walks series.
With summer in full swing it’s the ideal time to explore the wonderful Limewoods landscape. In addition to the already popular Bardney and Fiskerton walks, two new walks have been developed by Lincolnshire County Council’s Countryside Access Team. Discovering the county’s beautiful Limewoods couldn’t be easier.
Liz Fleuty, Limewoods Project officer, said:
“The new routes start in Wragby and Faldingworth with longer and shorter walk options available for both. This makes the Limewoods Walks a perfect way to get out, get some exercise and enjoy some time with the family.”
The Wragby route was recently enjoyed by many as part of the Wolds Walking Festival. This route visits the Bardney Limewoods National Nature Reserve, before moving into Goltho Wood, the Woodland Trust’s new woodland. It then ends by crossing the deserted medieval village of Goltho.
You can explore more of the Bardney Limewoods National Nature Reserve on the Faldingworth route, which also takes walkers through Wickenby Wood, an ancient woodland that is an important haven for wildlife. This is another great route for history buffs, passing through the deserted medieval village of Buslingthorpe.
Both walk routes are available from Lincolnshire County Council on 01522 782070 or can be picked up from local centres. The walks are also available to download from the Lincolnshire County Council website - please follow the link in the websites tab above.
