The Woodhall Spa Trail in winter

Just because it’s January, there’s no excuse for not going out to enjoy our Lincolnshire countryside, and there are some really enjoyable walks not far from the village centre. I have mentioned the Water Rail Way, which follows the River Witham from Boston to Lincoln, but another favourite is the Woodhall Spa Trail, which connects the village to the nearby market town of Horncastle.

This trail features in the iFootpath Walking Guide online series where you will find a mine of information for each section of this walk. The succinct introduction talks of: “A 7 mile ‘there and back’ walk along the mid section of the old Horncastle to Woodhall Junction railway line in Lincolnshire, known as the Spa Trail. The trail, part of the Viking Way long distance path, passes through a mix of woodland and open countryside. Along the way you will discover impressive sculptures made from wood, stone and metal, all reflecting local wildlife and links with the past.”

The iFootpath web page also has a photo gallery and a couple of comments, one of which sums the walk up well: “Done this walk many times with the ramblers and ourselves. Never tire of – it’s a lovely winter walk even without your walking boots on. Well worth a visit and with pubs & tea shops either end you cannot fail to enjoy.”

New TV cop drama set in East Lincolnshire

” When high-flying US police chief Bill Hixon lands in Boston, Lincolnshire, with his 14 year-old daughter Kelsey in tow, he’s hoping they can flee their painful recent past. But this unfamiliar, unimpressed community will force Bill to question everything about himself and leave him asking whether it’s Boston that needs Bill, or Bill that needs Boston?”

Such is the storyline of “Wild Bill”,  an new detective series commissioned recently by ITV. It stars Rob Lowe as the high-flying US cop who will shake up the East Lincolnshire force; you might recognise him from The West Wing, Parks and Recreation, Code Black or St. Elmo’s Fire.           Continue reading
