Nettleham Fieldpaths and Bridleways
There is a network of over 10km of well-maintained fieldpaths and bridleways around Nettleham. These paths allow residents to easily access the countryside for some exercise and fresh air, a chance to enjoy some panoramic views and catch glimpses of the wildlife that lives around the village.
There are currently 12 listed walks and one new permissive bridleway extension shown on the leaflet Countryside Walks in and around Nettleham.
Nettleham Parish Council have also just started a project working in partnership with a software developer to create some routes on a walking app that can be used on mobile phones.
All public rights of way are ultimately the responsibility of Lincolnshire County Council. However Nettleham Parish Council takes a proactive role in maintaining and developing the routes around the village. We are responsible for arranging the mowing of paths through the spring and summer, we monitor access issues and report problems with signage, and we look for opportunities to promote and expand routes. This work is done through the Parish Council’s Fieldpath Advisory Working Group – a small group of volunteer residents and parish councillors who all have an interest in walking or riding on our network of public rights of way. Please contact the Parish office if you are interested in joining this group to help promote and expand this valued village amenity.
