walks : little bytham : walk 2 : grange farm

added 30/11/03


This walk makes use of a newly created permissive footpath (thanks John!) and an existing public footpath to create a pleasant walk to the south of Little Bytham through an organic dairy farm. The route initally follows the West Glen River, offers the opportunity to walk across open fields and a section of disused railway and then emerges on the road into the village opposite the Willoughby Arms.

The walk has been made possible by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) working with a local landowner to create a Conservation Walk under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. The scheme helps farmers and land managers to protect and improve the countryside, its wildlife and history. Grass margins, hedges and pasture are being managed along the route under the Countryside Stewardship Scheme to benefit wildlife.
