Anyone interested in a country walk are welcome to join North Kesteven’s Countryside Officer for a stroll around Culverthorpe.

Dominated by the limestone hills where the Kesteven Uplands meet Lincoln Cliff, Culverthorpe and its neighbouring villages nestle on their northernmost slopes. Cut by an ice age tributary of the River Trent as melt-water flowed east from the Vale of Belvoir, this prehistoric river has created a gently rolling landscape with views over the countryside.

Culverthorpe Hall dates from around 1679 and is surrounded by 3,000 acres of parkland with two lakes and rolling pastureland. Commandeered in 1940 to provide wartime billets, the house is now in private ownership and returned to its original glory.

This walk is 3.3miles and will start at the Stepping Out car park near Culverthorpe Hall, NG32 3NQ (approximate location) at 1.30pm on Monday April 6. Allow up to two hours to complete this walk. For more information contact the countryside officer by emailing countrysidenk@1life.co.uk or call 01522 694353.
