Do Imps know the walkers go through Lincoln & Kesteven ?
The Long Distance Walkers Association
BARTON TO OAKHAM
LINCOLNSHIRE /LEICESTERSHIRE / RUTLAND
237 km / 147 miles
The Way is so named because it crosses an area which was occupied by Norse invaders
. From the banks of the River Humber it crosses the Lincolnshire Wolds to Caistor, then along the Bain valley to Horncastle from where the Spa Trail is followed along the trackbed of a former railway to Woodhall Spa and along the Witham Valley, crossing flat fenland to Lincoln.
Turning along the limestone escarpment of Lincoln Cliff and over Lincoln Heath, the route of the prehistoric Sewstern Lane is traced to reach Woolsthorpe Locks on the Grantham Canal.
Another section of Sewstern Lane and other old tracks are followed to Thistleton from where the Way takes field-paths and lanes past Greetham, Exton and Rutland Water.
At Oakham it links with the Macmillan Way and the Hereward Way
