Tathwell & Haugham
Introduction to Walk 1129

Photo from the walk - Tathwell & Haugham

County/Area - Lincolnshire

Author - Hugh Marrows

Length - 5.5 miles / 8.9 km

Ascent - 100 feet / 30 metres

Grade - easy

This short, easy Lincolnshire walk offers far reaching views over dramatic Wolds countryside. There are no refreshments on route, though there's plenty of choice in nearby Louth, but both Haugham and Tathwell churchyards make good picnic spots. The first half of the walk is along virtually traffic-free country lanes whilst the return is over remote, elevated countryside. It is a walk that is best done on a fine, clear day to fully enjoy it. Curiously the route crosses Greenwich Meridian twice.
