Benington - Green End - Burn Green - Hebing End - Benington

The gardens at Benington Lordship (open to the public), are renowned for their displays of snowdrops and scillas, then later in the year for honeysuckle and poppies. There is a moat around the castle mound and a carp pond. The village of Benington possibly owes its name to the proximity of the River Beane.

My wife and I did this walk on the 31st August 14. We thought it was a pleasant walk mainly across arable farmland. It was a lovely summers day and easy under foot. Nothing too strenuous. I am afraid some of the descriptions were a bit wooly. I would say the description at Waypoint 3 has a significant lack of information. I would re-write this as follows: Go through the metal barrier(photo) on the Bridalway. In 50 metres the path opens up into a very large grassed field turn sharp left(no sign). Do not go straight on over the field.Follow the superb track gently downhill for about 1/2 mile. When met by a track, bear left between the trees at the bottom, then almost bear right with a trees field to the left. Following the track a few metres downhill. Turn right through a gap in the hedge following a signpost into a large field.(see photo 4) The 2nd sign post in 4 has fallen over at the end of the hedge. I propped it up against the hedge. When reaching the wooded copse (4)the description is a little confusing: When you reach the track by the copse,shortly turn left at the track crossroads(large grassed area), following the bridalway sign. This track follows around the end of the copse and then immediately bears right.(as 5) Nice picnic area on the grass by the way. Note :8 It is about a mile from the sign to the road Waypoint 10 There are two large trees, the bridge is behind the far right one across the grassed field. Due to the overgrown area, it may be necessary to circumnavigate the far left large tree to get to the bridge. Note Waypoint 11. I should say we un-expectedly pleasantly found a park bench half way down the field on the RHS dedicated to the memory of George and his sister Rose Wells.It was a lovely place to sit and have a coffee and sandwich looking over some lovely countryside. Thank you George and Rose! Other that it was a good walk.
