Temple Bruer and Knights Templar Walk
Temple Bruer and the Knights Templar Walk is a 10.1km loop trail located near Lincoln. The trail is mainly using for walking, running and hiking.
Time: Allow 3 to 3.5 hours
Starting Point: The walk starts and finishes from St John the Baptist Church at Temple Bruer, located on a minor road between Wellingore and the A15. The minor road is accessed from the A15 (about 5 miles north of the roundabout between the A17 and A15) and heads west, signed towards Temple Bruer and Wellingore. The nearest post code, LN5 0DE, will take you into a farm on this lane, from which point continue west to reach the church on a right-hand bend in the lane. There is some parking along the access track for the church, but if there is a church service or other parish event underway, please use roadside parking along the minor road (heading back towards the A15) instead.
The Route: Loop
The route takes you through gently rolling farmland, taking in the remains of a Knights Templar Preceptory, a restored Horse Gin and a stretch of the old Roman Road, Ermine Street, along the way.
Rating: The walk includes gentle gradients.
It follows a mixture of quiet lanes and farm tracks of stone, tarmac and grass.
Access: Some of the grass tracks are rutted and can be muddy in winter or after rain. There are no stiles, gates or steps on route.
Dogs: Most of the surrounding fields are arable, but you may come across sheep in some of the fields adjacent to the tracks, contained with electric fencing, so take care with dogs.
