No. 7: The Lindsey Trail

Created by the Lincolnshire County Council, The British Driving Society, The British Horse Society and other organisations, The Lindsey Trail is a multi-user route through the Lincolnshire Wolds Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
75 miles in length, the trail is suitable for carriage drivers, horse riders, cyclists and walkers, and predominantly utilises the existing public highway network, incorporating both surfaced and unsurfaced quiet lanes, byways and restricted byways.
The Lindsey Trail will be officially opened in spring 2012.
