We're working with the National Trust to link Londonthorpe Woods with Bellmount, the eastern part of the Belton House Estate, through our Reconnecting Grantham project.

This monthly, 5km guided walk will take you from Belton House, along the Eastern Avenue of lime and sweet chestnut trees, and up and into Bellmount Tower.

The tower was built in 1750 and is one of the highest points in the area. From the top you'll be able to take in the view over Grantham and neighbouring counties. You'll also learn about the history of the Eastern Avenue and the tower itself including its connection to Belton House.

Don't forget

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and walking on unsurfaced ground.
