We lie very close to the Viking Way. This walk is 147 miles long and is linear starting at the Humber Bridge south bank viewing area from where it heads westwards along the Humber bank and passes underneath the bridge. Several access points give opportunities to visit the lakes and observation hides at Far Ings Nature Reserve.
It then continues through South Ferriby and up onto the chalk ridge of the Lincolnshire Wolds from where there are dramatic views of the River Humber, Read’s Island, South Ferriby Marina and the Ancholme Valley.
It then leads down into Barnetby-le-Wold, a railway village from where this 14 mile section leaves North Lincolnshire and travels via Caistor, Lincoln, through the Vale of Belvoir, finishing at Oakham in Rutland.
The name of the route reflects the influence of Danelaw in the eastern counties of Britain and throughout its length the Viking Way logo of a Viking helmet appears on waymark signs. Appropriate Ordnance Survey maps together with a guide to the complete walk are available from Brigg Tourist Information Centre.
