The Viking Way is a long-distance footpath, which runs for 130 miles from Barton-upon-Humber to Oakham, passing through some of the quietest and most attractive scenery in eastern England. The Way starts along the scarp and rolling hills of Lincolnshire Wolds, skirting several deserted medieval village sites, and continues through the Witham valley to historic Lincoln. Thence, it runs along the Lincoln Cliff, a Jurassic scarp, to the Leicestershire border along part of the Roman Ermine Street and other ancient trackways. The finish lies along the shores of Rutland Water to Oakham. Each chapter describes a section of path normally covering no more than 12 miles, with three slightly longer stretches. At the moment many locals walk the path in daily stages, but there is an increasing trend for the entire route to be tackled as a long-distance footpath. With no special effort, this should be accomplished easily in the space of a fortnight.
