A Boot Up Around Lincoln

A Boot Up Around Lincoln

In some ways Lincoln occupies an unusual location for county town, being roughly central on a north-south axis but just five miles from the Nottinghamshire boundary to the west whilst being almost forty miles from the coast to the east. Geographically and topographically of course there are good reasons why the city grew where it did, as the Romans recognised when establishing their “Lindum Colonia”.

Nevertheless within its surrounding countryside Lincoln enjoys a wide variety of scenery, ranging from the heights of the escarpment of the Lincoln Cliff to the north and the south, the wide expanses of the heath to riverside meadows beside the River Trent and the virtual fenlands of the Witham valley.

This book represents a new concept in Lincolnshire walking guides. Taking as its base the historic City of Lincoln the walks lie within an approximately 15-mile radius of the city’s centre; that is to say about half an hour’s drive – at the most – for the majority of its residents.

All the walks have been carefully chosen for their variety and location and to encompass both the well known – and perhaps to some readers, less well known – history to be found there. The walks also attempt to cater for all ages and abilities as they range in distance from 2 to 7 ¾ miles. They are presented in a clockwise sequence starting from Marton beside the River Trent in the northwest round to Bassingham in the southwest.

The ten walks are:

Marton & the River Trent • Hemswell & Willoughton • The River Ancholme from Brandy Wharf • Riseholme, South Carlton & Burton • Skellingthorpe & Doddington (via Harby) • Bardney • Stixwould & the Water Rail Way (via Kirkstead) • Scopwick, Kirkby Green & Blankney • Navenby to Coleby • Bassingham
