Enjoy a walk around this pretty reservoir and along the Louth Canal on this waterside walk in Lincolnshire.
Start your walk from the car park at the north western tip of the reservoir. Then follow the paths around the water to the canal on the eastern side of the water. The route then picks up the towpath following it north before following nice country lanes through the countryside around Fulstow. There's nice paths along the reservoir and views across the water to the lovely Lincolnshire Wolds countryside.
The reservoir is close to the villages of Covenham St Bartholomewand Covenham St Mary. After your walk you can visit the the Grade IIlistedAnglican church of St Bartholomew. Here you will find amonumental brasswith aneffigyof Sir John Skypwyth dated 1415. There's also some 13th century stoneworkand delightful churchyard which is also a nature reserve. You can enjoy refreshments at the attractive Mill House restaurant. It is believed to be of 16th century origin, having previously ground corn for the nearby Benedictine Priory.
