River Slea

River Slea

Friday 13 October 2017

On Friday 13 October the Poacher Line will be taking part in the South Lincolnshire Walking Festival with a train walk from Sleaford Station.

From 1pm you can take a relatively easy four-mile walk past the Sleaford Castle ruins, taking in views of the surrounding area along the River Slea. The walk uses field paths, roadside paths and quiet lanes which may be uneven and muddy in places. There are no stiles on this walk, but the busy A15 road is crossed twice. It is expected the walk will take between 1.5 - 2 hours.

The walk will finish at Millers Bar in Sleaford - with a free tea or coffee when you buy any cake.
