Crowle and Ealand are villages on the Isle of Axholme, a large area of land drained in the early 1600s by the Dutch engineer Cornelius Vermuyden. The main characteristic of the Isle is that it is predominantly flat, so those looking for easy walking have certainly got it here.

The Regen Way was developed in 1996 as part of the Crowle and Ealand Regeneration Project. It is an 8.5 mile ramble, starting at Crowle Station (actually in the neighbouring village of Ealand) and walking right around the villages.

We start by walking along the bank of the Stainforth & Keadby Canal, passing Godnow Bridge and onwards to Medge Hall. Watch out for kingfishers along this section and also fish leaping from the canal (large, but too fast for me to identify).

At Medge Hall, we pick up the old Crook o'Moor Road and follow it across Crook o'Moor swing-bridge and onwards. We now follow a network of good tracks before passing over the only hill in the area. Although we only reach the vertiginous height of 12m, the views are long, as the surrounding Isle of Axholme is almost totally flat.

The last leg of our walk passes through the sleepy village of Ealand, back to Crowle Station and the start of the walk.

This is an ideal dog-walk.

Just got back from this walk. We would rate it at 3 because it was featureless in parts, but 4 for the dogs. They loved dipping in and out of the canal and dykes to keep cool. Directions are good, we saw plenty of bird life, If you encounter scorching weather, like we did. Pleases remember the sun cream, as there is very little shelter, after leaving the canal. Thank you for the route.

An enjoyable walk in an interesting area of North Lincolmshire.

Myself and 2 friends did this walk on 15/11/2008. The pub near to the railway station at the start point is closed. We deviated from the route at point 15 by continuing down the road into Crowle where we found a pub. After lunch we found the path leading back to rejoin the route between points 18 and 19.

just done this walk with two very energentic 1 year old dogs and they are both asleep in front of the fire . A job well done . If youve the energy then a detour into crowle moors well worth the effort .
