The Countryside Code:

Respect. Protect. Enjoy.

Respect other people

  • Consider the local community and other people enjoying the outdoors

  • Leave gates and property as you find them and follow paths unless wider access is available

Protect the natural environment

       • Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home
       • Keep dogs under effective control and on a lead near livestock


       • Plan ahead and be prepared
       • Follow advice and local signs

All routes have been walked recently and are gentle walks in villages and countryside within walking distance or a short drive from Market Deeping. However changes can happen so please follow any sign posted diversions.

Parish Walk 1– The first of the parish walks we do every year to check their condition and make sure they are used. Mainly in and around town, it is easy footpaths with some fields.

Parish Walk 2– The second of the annual parish walks

Welland Walk  - A short walk following the course of the River Welland as it flows next to the town. There is a stile and a couple of kissing gates to negotiate. However, it is an easy after dinner stroll.
