Starting from one of the most open tops of the Wolds, the walk provides some of the best of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The route soon descends to Farforth and through a wonderful, deserted valley to Oxcombe and its church. Back at a hilltop, we meet the road and for much of Belchford Hill there is a permissive field path to avoid the dangerous bends down the hill. From the bottom of the hill, tracks lead to Tetford with a church providing a good lunch spot.
Leaving Tetford a steep climb proves to the doubting that Lincolnshire isn't all flat. The walk skirts Worlaby House and a quiet farm road beside attractive ponds leads to Ruckland and its church, whose setting makes this a tea break spot to remember. The route then leads back to Farforth, with the last of our beautiful little churches, and a gentle climb back to the start.

During the summer, look out for game cover maize plantings with numerous sunflowers.

Just finished this walk. I must say as a first time user of the app, it really helps having the maps & waypoints. I would imagine i will be doing this route regularly, as its a nice relaxing walk with beautiful scenery, and the dog loved it. 10/10 for a good Sunday stroll!

Just finished this walk, it has some stunning views, can be muddy in places. The hill after Tetford was a bit of a killer but well worth it. Overall a lovely walk.

Did the walk on 3/05/13 but parked in Tetford at the Holiday cottages. Did this as we started the day with a full breakfast at the diner. The paths were all maintained and we visited some delightful churches on the way. It took us about 4 hours but we did stop off at the churches for a look round. My GPS made it a 9 and a half miles circular walk. Some great views on this walk although there is some steep ascents and descents.

Having only just started walking a colleague and I decided to try out this walk. Not only was the scenery breathtaking but the walk was most enjoyable taking you through some of the best countryside this county has to offer. Well worth a visit by anyone and highly recommended. Beware the hill as you exit Tetford, It's deceivingly steep!! Mark Lassmans
