Join the WatchNK Countryside Rangers for a walk through open countryside and pastureland around the picturesque village of Blankney on Sunday.
Blankney lies between Metheringham and Scopwick and is at the centre of a large farming estate originally granted to Walter De Aincourt by William the Conqueror for services rendered at the Battle of Hastings.
The village is steeped in history in a beautiful setting. This walk will lead you past dense beech woodland leading up to Blankney Hall. Following into pasture beyond, you will also catch a glimpse of St Oswald’s Church and enjoy the berry-filled hedgerows along the way.
This walk is 3.8 miles and will last for approximately two hours in duration at a leisurely pace. To take part in this walk, meet the WatchNK Countryside Rangers on Sunday (October 5) at 10.30am in the Blankney Stepping Out Car Park which is clearly signposted from the main road.
All children must be accompanied by an adult. Suitable outdoor clothing and footwear is also recommended.
