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.

As part of this 5km guided walk you'll visit the war graves at Londonthorpe church and enter Bellmount Tower to see for yourself the scale of the area's contribution to the war effort during both the First and Second World War.
