Horncastle Canal Walk (2.5 or 1.25 miles)

This walk, south of Horncastle, will take you through a developing woodland (Banovallum Carr), along the banks of a river and the Horncastle Navigation canal before joining a trail on part of an old railway line.
 
Banovallum Carr covers 20 acres and consists of mainly birch and alder trees with some willow and buckthorn along its edges. The first trees were planted on the site by local people in 2001 and a further adjacent area planted in 2007. The Horncastle Navigation canal opened in 1802 at a cost of £45,000. It ran between Horncastle and Tattershall, a distance of 11 miles, where it joined the Tattershall canal which linked to the river Witham.
