Gunby Hall and Gardens
Enter the gardens through the ornamental gates at the front of the house. Go left past the house and follow the garden path towards the church. Leave the gardens and go through the gate on your left before the church.
From St. Peter's Church, carry straight on and cross the parkland. Continue to the stile keeping the cottages and trees on your left.
Follow the path and climb over a second stile into a field. Turn left and follow the fence line by the trees to the gate and stile. Follow the purple way markers along the green lane.
At the end of the green lane turn left. Continue along the lane and through a field until you reach the disused East Lincolnshire railway line.
Cross the old East Lincolnshire line and walk along the edge of the field and climb over the next stile.
You have now reached the site of the medieval moat, which you will see in front of you.
You may return the way you came, or you can extend your walk with a visit to Bratoft church (not National Trust) which has connections to the Massingberd family. Carry straight on along the side of the moat, climb the stile and walk straight on along the lane. You will see a road ahead - carry straight on and take the first left to the church on the left.
Retrace your steps back to Gunby Hall and Gardens.
