Linby and Papplewick

May 5, 2012

There is quite a bit to see in Lindby and Papplewick, particularly if you walk round both villages rather than driving between them.

Linby has a very attractive main street with a range of interesting buildings and a stream flowing along both sides of the road.  There is a Heritage Centre open April to September .

Papplewick is slightly  larger than Linby.  Situated on relatively busy cross roads, it has retained its rural charm if walk the local paths. The church is a little gem and is best approached on the footpath across the fields from Linby.

The Papplewick  website is very informative.  A good place to park is the small car park opposite Castle Mill on Linby Lane. The footpaths along the River Lean give access to both villages. The website for Moor Pond Wood


Linby walk 1  Leisurely – 6 miles  (9.6km) This is a really good walk. Wander round the picturesque villages of Linby and Papplewick plus beautiful Newstead Abbey.  The old rail line has an interesting range of wild flowers in the pools and bogs. Recommended

Linby walk 2  Leisurely – 4.6 miles (7.2km). Walk the historic and attractive villagers of Linby and Papplewick. Recommended

Linby walk 3  Easy – 2.1 miles (3.4km) Similar to the above but just the villages, no extra sections.

Newstead walk 1   Leisurely – 6.5 miles (10.4km) A chance to see more of Newstead than most visitors. Walking round the Abbey grounds hasn’t been included in the distance.
