The Buckfast Millennium Pilgrimage 2019

Day 4: Ludford to Caistor

A lovely day along the edge of the Wolds with their ups and downs, visiting some of the highest churches in Lincolnshire, but only two stiles. All Saints church in Walesby, "The Ramblers' Church", sits atop a short but steep hill above the village, and from the churchyard you can get wonderful views across the Lincolnshire Plains towards Lincoln and the west. St Peter in Normanby le Mode is higher still. Dressing as a Viking is optional as we follow some of the Viking Way.
