There are also a wonderful array of cycling and walking routes for you to explore.

Willingham Woods on the eastern edge of Market Rasen, is the perfect setting for walking and cycling. Many of the circular routes from Market Rasen use the National cycle Route 1 as a base.

Witham Valley Country Park is made up of a number of green spaces in the heart of Lincolnshire. The park is a great place to unwind in beautiful, unspoilt countryside, rich in wildlife and history.

Chambers Farm Nature Reserve is a fascinating place for anyone interested in flora and fauna. Situated on the site of a medieval woodland it contains ancient Limes and a wealth of butterflies.

Limewood walks are a series of six circular walks ranging from 3.75-9.25 miles which have been produced by Lincolnshire County Council’s Countryside Access team.

Fiskerton Fen Nature Reserve lies beside the River Witham. It was created from the huge pit that was left when clay was dug out to reinforce the river banks and reduce flood risk. The site has been developed to benefit wildlife associated with fen and reed beds.

Scotton Common is rich in heathland plants and attracts many breeding birds, butterflies and has a thriving population of emperor moths. Located west of Scotton village with a car park off the A159. The site is managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.

The Viking Way footpath runs 130 miles, starting at the Humber Bridge and ending in Oakham, Rutland. The path passes through the centre of Caistor, and the picturesque village of Tealby near the town of Market Rasen.
