|An easy four mile walk in North East Lincolnshire. The walk starts at Tetney Lock and includes a quiet country lane leading to the Humber Estuary where you will overlook the RSBP reserve with a good chance of seeing a wide selection of birds such as oyster catchers, little turn, redshank, ringed plover and many other water fowl. The Humber estuary also includes the two forts which were built during WW 1 but only saw action in WW2 when they helped defend the entrance with submarine nets. The forts were machine gunned several times by German mine laying aircraft. The lock at Tetney no longer actually exists, but once provided navigation from the North Sea to Louth.|
The village of Tetney is on the A1031 between Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe, just south of Humberston. Tetney Lock is clearly signed from the main road.
|Start to Left turn|
Start point: 53.4982 lat, 0.0224 long
The walk starts at the Crown and Anchor. Follow the main road across the bridge over the navigation canal followed by a second bridge over a drain. Turn right along Newton Marsh Lane and continue along the tarmac track as it turns to the left. (NOTE: do not take the stile ahead on this bend, that is the way you will be returning at the end of the walk).
|Left turn to Concrete Stile|
Start point: 53.5017 lat, 0.0263 long
Having turned left, the lane eventually becomes a track as you pass Braybrook Farm and then Low Farm. Continue straight ahead until you reach a gate with a set of concrete steps which act as a stile.
|Concrete Stile to Wooden Bridge|
Start point: 53.5145 lat, 0.0151 long
Cross the stile and continue for another 100m to the 'T' junction. Turn right at this junction and in the distance you will see the embankment of the Humber. The main path turns left but keep straight ahead following the way marker with a viking ship. This takes you down a grass path with the field on your left and a drain on your right. The wooden bridge is just before the embankment.
|Wooden Bridge to River|
Start point: 53.5177 lat, 0.0195 long
Cross the bridge, climb the embankment and turn right and follow the embankment all the way to the river. You will pass several WW2 pill boxes and from here you will see the two forts at the entrance to the Humber. Haile Sand Fort is the one nearest you and Bull Fort stands nearer the north bank and Spurn Point. The RSPB reserve stretches for several miles and is said to hold 175,000 birds during the winter months. The marsh areas to your left can be dangerous and must be avoided.
|River to Newton Marsh Lane|
Start point: 53.5072 lat, 0.0393 long
At the 'T' junction with the river mouth turn right to continue the walk, but you may wish to make a short detour and turn left to see an information board with notes on types of bird in the marshes and a layout of the estuary. Retrace your steps and continue the walk along the embankment with the river on your left. You will pass through two gates and at a fork in the path keep left along the river bank until you reach Newton Marsh Lane.
|Newton Marsh Lane to Crown & Anchor|
Start point: 53.5019 lat, 0.0269 long
You will rejoin Newton Marsh Lane at the left turn you took earlier. Retrace your steps back to the Crown and Anchor for well earned refreshments.

Nice walk but at the step marked "left turn to concrete stile" make sure you turn left, the instructions that follow the title I found a little misleading and climbed the stile, this is the route on which you will return.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
