Walking Close to Stamford

Walking Close to Stamford

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical. The walks make use of rights of way, national recreational paths and riverside paths in the Stamford area.

This guide focuses on the River Welland near Stamford with ten varied and interesting circular walks, mainly about 6 miles in length. Historic Stamford, from 'Stone Ford' owes its existence to the prehistoric crossing point over the River Welland, used until the building of the first bridge. All through history Stamford has been a staging post on the Great North Road between London and York. Today the town retains a great deal of old world charm, Tudor, Stuart and Georgian stone buildings are still grouped around a largely medieval street pattern.

The walk locations are:
Stamford and Wothorpe Groves - 5.5 miles
Greetham and Fort Henry - 6 miles
Ryhall and Tolethorpe Park - 8 miles
Stamford and Easton on the Hill - 5.5 miles
Fineshade Abbey and Wakerley Great Wood - 9.75 miles
