This is my favourite walk around Crowle & Thorne Moors. It takes you over the Bailey bridge and back over the new foot bridge.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
(D/A) From the car park follow the footpath through the gate.
(1) The path turns left and you will cross a boardwalk. Pass through the kissing gate into the wooded area of the moors.
(2) At the T junction turn left and follow the footpath to the Bailey Bridge.
(3) Cross the warping drain by means of the Bailey bridge and turn right. Follow the track to the Natural England maintenance shed.
(4) At the maintenance shed turn Left and follow the track to the track junction.
(5) At the track junction turn right and follow the track to the main track known as Limestone or Fisons Road where you need to turn left.
(6) Take the small footpath on the right and follow this to a T junction. At the T junction turn right. Follow the path to the track by the warping drain.
(7) At the warping drain turn right onto the main track. -
(8) Turn left over the new footbridge and follow the footpath.
(9) After passing through the gate turn right and follow the footpath, which becomes a road back to the car park.(D/A)

Really nice to go somewhere different to our usual type of countryside. This is a diverse landscape, flat, with nominally small trees growing in bog land. Saw a pair of Hobbies catching dragonfly's and a heard of approx. 25/30 Roe Deer. The paths were well marked and matched the written description, except for one where there was no post and we missed it, having to back-track a half mile when we realised we'd over-shot.
Good parking also.
This walk goes from the car park on Crowle Moor to the viewing tower in the middle of Thorne Moors from where you have a great view of the moors.
A gentle walk around Crowle Common from Crowle in Lincolnshire.
Starting at the church in North Cave this walk takes in the pretty Drewton Estate, and then loops round using the High Hunsley Circuit to North Newbald. From there the walk makes it's way to the beautiful village of Hotham before returning to North Cave.
