Danelaw Way

Danelaw Way

Danelaw Way

by Brett Collier
The Danelaw Way is a walk of around 60 miles through some of the loveliest and most peaceful countryside in Lincolnshire and Rutland. The walk connects Lincoln and Stamford, two 'burghs' of the ancient Danelaw. Although the route is mainly within Lincolnshire it does stray briefly into Rutland at a particularly attractive section associated with John Clare, the poet.

The guide describes the route in five stages, varying from 9 to 14 miles. Two alternative routes are provided for the last stage to Stamford because Ramblers' Association members surveying the route could not agree which was the most attractive to be included in the book. It is an authoritative guide full of detail about the route that makes finding your way easy and enjoyable. Clear sketch maps linked to the text enable you to see exactly where you are en-route. The guide is full of interesting comments and historical detail about each area. A separate document is included providing text updates from 2011.

The five stages are:
Linclon to Aubourn - 9.5 miles
Aubourn to Caythorpe - 11.5 or 13 miles
Caythorpe to Ropsley - 14 miles
Ropsley to Castle Bytham - 12.5 miles
Castle Bytham to Stamford (two options) - 12.5 or 9 miles
A circular walk from Ryhall is also included - 8 miles

Brett Collier, the author of several walking guides listed on Walking Pages, died suddenly in March 2005. The Lincoln Group Ramblers' Association has taken on the task of publishing this book as a tribute and memorial to Brett who has done so much to promote walking in Lincolnshire.
