Somersby & Bag Enderby.

The two villages  of Somersby and Bag Enderby  tucked away in the middle of Hill Wapentake essentially form a single unit and two hundred years ago were ministered as one by Tennyson’s father Dr. George Clayton Tennyson. They are separated from the rest of the Wolds by distinct physical boundaries with the steep red chalk […]

New England Ravine & Warden Hill

The distinctive winding shape of the New England Ravine starts just south of Tetford where the River Lymn cuts it way through a low ridge of Spilsby Sandstone to create a narrow valley two kilometres long and 15 metres deep. It has steep sides with the occasional sandstone bluff overlooking a flat boggy floor. It […]

Ashby Puerorum & Stainsby

Stainsby & Snake Lane. As Greetham was an important soke at the time of the DB it is not surprising that a number of roads converge nearby. To the north there is a straight road to Tetford and fairly straight road to the neighbouring soke of Belchford and just to the south there is a […]

Today Greetham […]

Roach Ridge Views

  Fulletby stands on a long north south trending ridge from which most of the feeder streams of the River Lymn begin. At a height of nearly 140 metres asl the view east, either just north or south of the village, encompasses much of Lymndale. Principally the upper dale from the north side of the […]

Tetford Hill and Village.

Tetford Hill at 142 metres is the highest point on the route and offers wide sweeping views not only across Lymndale but also east to the coast and west inland. These views continue along High Rigg, which the Bluestone Heath Road follows for five kilometres to Scamblesby Thorpe. The ridgeway clings to the sinuous chalk […]

Upper Lymndale

The head waters of the River Lymn come together to form a sizeable stream about two kilometres west of Tetford. These original trickles run down from the surrounding hills that reach a height of 140 metres asl and meet at a height of just 60 metres asl. The dale quickly becomes broad as it opens […]
