From Ashby cum Fenby the route follows good footpaths to Wold Newton where the old signpost might wrongly lull the walker into imagining this was the halfway point. The village is left behind and the route is along The Valley to Beesby.

The last stretch to Louth goes through beautiful Hubbards Hills where it follows the River Lud and finally arrives at St James’ Church at the end of the day.

Thanks to a grant from 'Awards for All' we have been able to produce two separate leaflets, one detailing The Silver Lincs Way as outlined above, and the second detailing circular walks (links) which include part of The Way. The funding also enabled us to waymark the routes.

A second reprint of both leaflets in February 2007 has been possible thanks to the Lincolnshire Wolds Sustainable Development Fund.
