To Legsby and Linwood via Linwood Warren Market Rasen 5.75 miles)

5.75 miles
194 ft
3.5 hrs
This walk starts from Market Rasen and heads through fields over the Coversands; soils which are very deep but which dry out quickly and are subject to wind erosion. This route gives you the opportunity to explore a heathland nature reserve.

Linwood Warren, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust Reserve, is an important heathland site. The area has been used extensively throughout the centuries, with flint implements, Roman kilns, medieval field systems and First World War practice trenches all playing a part in the rich history of the site. All three heathers can be found on site - bell heather, cross leaved heath and ling (the original heather); the other wildlife taking advantage of the site include butterflies, reptiles and birds, most notably the green woodpecker or Yaffle.
