Find acres of woodland waiting to be discovered. Enjoy a woodland walk, spot local wildlife, or head out on a day of adventure with family and friends.

Many woodlands in West Lindsey are owned and managed by the Woodland Trust and Forestry England, who both care for our nation’s forests for the benefit for all to enjoy.


Discover Britain's largest expanse of lime wood, with over 60 metres of small lime woodland. Visitors can enjoy several walking and cycling routes through the peaceful landscape.

Chambers Farm Wood

Situated on the site of a medieval woodland, it contains ancient limes and a wealth of butterflies – a joy for any nature lover at any time of the year.

Willingham Woods

Find a wide range of walking trails that is part of a large complex of pinewoods just a short drive from Market Rasen. It provides a diverse range of recreational opportunities and is visited all year round.
