Walk around Winterton Parish

A walk or cycle ride about 6.1 miles long. All on tarmac road/lane or stone track. You will get a real feeling for the low lying lands of the Ancholme Valley floor. And you never leave the parish of Winterton. All these lands were once farmed by those who lived in the medieval settlement of Winterton. This was the land which gave rise to the 'Winterton Riots' in the 17th century when the Ancholme Drainage scheme was implemented.

Ancholme Valley Trail

The River Ancholme runs north through the eastern part of Winterton parish to meet
the Humber Estuary. To the east is the chalk scarp slope of the Lincolnshire Wolds with the so-called ‘low villages’ – including Horkstow and Saxby All Saints. To the west rises the gentle dip slope of the Jurassic Limestone. Settlements such as Winterton and Roxby lie up this slope just above flood level. The valley was once a tidal inlet. The lowest parts of the landscape result from flooding and repeated attempts at reclamation and drainage.
Total distance - around 15 miles on tarmac road/lane/path or stone track.

Lincolnshire Towers Trail

Travel around the area of northern Lincolnshire and you will come across many fine examples of Anglo-Norman architecture. Among them are the so called Lincolnshire Towers, a group of church towers which are unique to this part of the country and of which Winterton, All Saints is a fine example. This trail explores fourteen churches. At some, like Winterton, the tower is obvious but at others only a fragment survives.
