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.

On this 10km (four hour) guided walk we'll share insights into local history and the composition of the woodland at Londonthorpe, taking in Belton's Deer Sanctuary and Bellmount as part of the route.

Don't forget

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and walking in the woods.

As this is one of our longer walks, please bring your own drinks and refreshments to keep up your energy levels throughout.
