Winteringham circular walking route

Distance

2.7 miles

Start

Postcode DN15 9PF. Grid Reference SE9322.     

Between Low Burgage and Winteringham Haven – careful parking on the grass verge please.

Route

1. Walk back uphill to the village.

2. Turn left along Silver Street.

3. Opposite an old barn on the left, a fingerpost on the right indicates the way up the right hand side of a drive, continuing up past wooden sheds to another fingerpost; turn right on a path along the backs of gardens.

4. Go up some gravel steps through a gap in the hedge and continue ahead to a road junction.

5. Cross into Cliff Road, later crossing Hewde Lane and up into the countryside.

6. At a distinctive bend with a sheltered seat, turn right on to a farm track; at a fingerpost continue ahead along a grassy track.

7. The path drops steeply down to a path junction; turn first left and in a few yards right down a path, through a kissing gate into a fence-enclosed section, down 3 steps into a street opposite the rockery.

8. Bear left, following Meggitt Lane past the church then round to the right and continuing ahead into Western Green.

9. At the road junction turn left along Marsh Lane, cross Haven Drain heading towards the Humber.

10. At the road junction, turn right along Waterside Road.

11. At the Haven, bend right and back along the road to the start.    

Terrain

The walk goes uphill on the road and then pavement, levelling out along Silver Street on pavement; it crosses to the unusual path alongside the garden.    

A grassy path leads slightly uphill again to the four-way road junction. Pavement is used uphill along Cliff Road; once across Hewde Lane one can use the grass verge still rising steadily to the seat at the corner.

The farm track from point six rises slightly to the fingerpost, levelling out along the hilltop (wonderful views). The grassy path descends steadily at first, steepening near point seven, then continuing down to Meggitt Lane where the walk levels out along quiet country lanes.

Waterwise Road is a ‘No Through Road’ so traffic is minimal. Even the lane from the Haven to the village is quiet.

Time

Allow an hour and a half to complete the walk at a leisurely pace.
