Starting in the small North Lincolnshire village of Flixborough, famous for the 1974 chemical plant disaster, this walk takes us briefly on field-edge tracks over to the horselands of Little Normanby. From here it's a short road-walk to Burton-upon-Stather. Despite now being a fair-sized commuter village for nearby Scunthorpe, Burton-upon-Stather retains its small village feel, especially in the village centre and is rich with history.

Our walk now takes us downhill, through the mixed woodland of Burton Wood, to walk along the bottom of the wood on a track known locally as 'Wood Bottom'. Passing the industrial estate that now occupies the former site of the Nypro Chemical Plant, we briefly enter an area known locally as 'Acky's Warren', before climbing back uphill and crossing the old railway line into Flixborough. Why not reward yourself with a pint, or meal, in the excellent Flixborough Inn?

This is an excellent dog-walking route.
