|Fulbeck and the Lincoln Cliff|
|Author: Claire, Published: 17 Jul 2013||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 4.5 mile circular walk from Fulbeck, one of the ‘cliff villages’ that lie on the limestone escarpment known as the Lincoln Cliff or Lincoln Edge that runs from the River Humber down to Grantham. The route follows quiet lanes and field paths giving a peaceful setting in which to enjoy the views north towards Lincoln and across the Trent Valley to east Nottinghamshire. |
The walk follows a mixture of village/farm lanes and field and grass tracks, the latter of which can get quite muddy after periods of rain. There are no stiles and just a couple of gates. The walk includes several climbs and descents throughout. Allow 2 hours.
Fulbeck can be found on the A607 Cliff Road, about half way between Lincoln and Grantham. The walk starts from the playing fields car park which is directly opposite the church on the A607. Approximate post code NG32 3JJ.
|Start to Beck Lane|
Start point: 53.0422 lat, -0.5859 long
Leave the car park alongside the bus stop, cross over the main road and take the road just to the left of the Hare and Hounds pub, called Rectory Lane. Follow the lane downhill until you reach a crossroads with Bulby Lane. Turn right along Bulby Lane and continue only as far as the point where the lane swings hard right with a couple of properties ahead and a dead-end lane to the left – Beck Lane.
|Beck Lane to Crop Footpath|
Start point: 53.0446 lat, -0.5916 long
Turn left down Beck Lane, the hedge-lined dead end lane. Follow the tarmac lane ahead and around a dog leg, right then left. Continue past the stone cottage and converted barn of Beck Farm on the left. Keep ahead along the now stone surfaced farm track for some distance further.
|Crop Footpath to Grass Track|
Start point: 53.0474 lat, -0.6176 long
Turn sharp left here and follow the footpath diagonally through the middle of the crop field. Pass through the gap in the hedge and cross the next crop field in the same direction, heading for a single tree just to the right of the left-hand far corner. (If the crop is tall and the path isn’t ploughed then follow the left-hand field boundary round to the far left corner).
|Grass Track to Footbridge|
Start point: 53.0331 lat, -0.6103 long
Turn left along the track and take a moment here to enjoy the views from this ridge top position which stretch for miles across the surrounding countryside. Over to the right you’ll be able to see the church spire of Caythorpe Church, which stands 47 metres high.
|Footbridge to End|
Start point: 53.0375 lat, -0.5934 long
Cross the footbridge and then, facing square into the field, take the footpath at 11 o’clock heading for an alleyway between garden fences. Take the narrow footpath between the houses and at the end bear left down the tarmac lane.

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!
