Photo from the walk - New Waltham Circular

County/Area - Lincolnshire

Author - John Coombes

Length - 4.5 miles / 7.3 km

Ascent - 50 feet / 15 metres

This circular walk takes in the wonderful Lincolnshire countryside with its open space and fresh air with the light fragrance of the wild flowers. The walk just touches the outskirts of Holton le Clay, then picks up part of the old disused East Lincolnshire railway line back into the village of New Waltham. The beauty of this walk is it can be extended to Louth and or Holton le Clay and beyond.
