Start

West Butterwick Village Hall off West Street.

From the A18 at Keadby Bridge, follow the road through Althorpe, Derrythorpe and into West Butterwick via North Street. Just after the Three Horse Shoes pub, turn into West Street.

Look for the village hall sign down a lane on the right (Ullyet Lane).      

Route          

  1. Walk down Ullyet lane to West Street, turn right and cross the road towards the public footpath at the side of number 85.
  2. Cross the field diagonally to the bottom of Carr lane where it meets Common Lane .
  3. Turn Left and continue to South field drain point four. Continue as original route.
  4. At this junction turn left over a wooden bridge, heading towards a building near a bank.
  5. The wide drain on your left leads to the building, which is a pumping station.
  6. Cross the road and turn left along the river embankment back towards the village.
  7. A finger post indicates the way across an arable field, so leave the embankment, cross the road and follow the path.
