A circular walk of 3 ½ miles (5 ½ km) from Winceby, through Hameringham and Asgarby
This walk at the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds offers some fine hilltop views and takes in the scene of the Civil War Battle of Winceby, and the hamlets of Winceby, Hameringam and Asgarby. There has been human settlement in this area since prehistoric times, and the marks that generations of people have left upon the landscape are still visible today.
An information board in the lay-by on the B1195 to the north-west of Winceby village describes the Battle of Winceby.
