Donington on Bain and Biscathorpe

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

This walk starts in the pretty Lincolnshire Wolds village of Donington on Bain. We climb to the hill overlooking the village and follow a bridleway back along the wold top, before descending to the deserted medieval village of Biscathorpe.

At Biscathorpe, with its small but quite ornate church, we pick up the Viking Way beside a series of fords over the tributaries of the Bain. We follow the Viking Way back along the river, but leave it in favour of a prettier route into the village.

Once back in Donington on Bain, refreshment can be had in the form of the Black Horse pub.

There are a couple of dog-unfriendly stiles on the route.

This is a lovely walk through a beautiful part of the Lincolnshire Wolds. It was easy going with only a small climb up the hill from where we parked our car. Our 5 year old son also really enjoyed the walk, so this is definitely a walk for the family. Please be aware that it can be very muddy between waypoints 3 & 5, this was down to the recent wet weather and harvesting of the potato fields which you cross between these waypoints. A bench has been added on the left hand side just before the first footbridge at waypoint 7. Every walker must visit the abandoned church at waypoint 8, it is so quaint and just frozen in time. It is well preserved despite being abandoned and is a nice feature of the walk.
