Willingham Woods

Willingham Woods is part of a large complex of pinewoods that are located east of Market Rasen. It provides a diverse range of recreational opportunities as well as an important source of timber.

The woodland is visited all year round but is especially popular during the summer months, when holidaymakers use it as a break point whilst heading to and from the coast.

Boughton Brake pond

Boughton Brake provides a great place to explore with an extensive network of paths and tracks. There are also plenty of benches located throughout the wood where you can stop and take in the natural beauty.

Check out the orienteering course and go on a hunt for the posts!

The wood is not suitable for horse riding but a bridleway does run along the western side of the wood and can be used to get from Walesby to Boughton.
