Starting from Ludford, cross country to Tealby and the oldest thatched pub in Lincolnshire (fantastic food and real ale!) Back across the undulating Lincolnshire Wolds and looping back around to pass Stainton le Vale and through Kirmond Mire and Thorpe Le Vale before finishing back at Ludford. An easy to moderate walk linking up villages and Hamlets in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds with great views all the way across to Lincolnshire Cathedral.

Wrong Details In Description

The Synopsis of this walk states that it is around 8 miles but it is 10.6 miles (maybe because I didn't include a waymark at he finish?)

What do you think?
