Belton Park, Grantham

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

The walk is not strenuous or difficult to follow, in fact I would recommend letting the children do the navigating. You will find it very quiet, since most families stay within the area of the formal gardens. There are plenty of birds to look for at the right season and time of day (kingfishers, tree creepers, herons jays, woodpeckers, grebes and cormorants plus songbirds.) You would be unlucky, though, not to see the large herd of fallow deer at any time. There are three species of bats in the park and it is quite easy to see the Noctule bat on warm summer evenings (remember those?)

We tried this walk last week whilst on holiday, using a Tramper all terrain mobility scooter. Pleased to say that the kissing gates mentioned in the walk have now all been replaced by "open and shut" gates allowing access for a scooter. Couldn't see the mushrooms but found our way despite this. Parkland was dog friendly, but is not allowed in the formal gardens of Belton House.
