Grimsthorpe Castle Walk

Grimsthorpe Castle, near Bourne, is one of Lincolnshire’s finest stately homes and in another article we will look at it in more detail. For now we are concentrating on a 10 mile circular walk that takes you through the castle grounds. It is one of my favourite local walks.

The traditional starting point for this walk is The Five Bells pub at Edenham. At the time of writing (Feb 2024) the pub was closed for refurbishment. However their Facebook page promised that they would be reopening soon. An alternative starting point is Swinstead where you will find plenty of on street parking. Either way you are looking at a 30 minute drive from Allington.

There’s more information about the walk on the Komoot website. Just follow the link below. If you haven’t got one, sign up with Komoot for a free account. The photos at the bottom of the page were taken along the route in 2016.
