A place to indulge in your favourite sport or pastime...
North Lincolnshire is a great place to get active! Whether your passion is for bird watching, fishing, golf or paintball!
Cycling is a pleasure on the quite country lanes. Sustrans Route 1, part of the national cycle network passes through the area and we have developed a network of 13 other enjoyable routes, from 6 to 50 miles in length.
The prolific waters of the River Ancholme attract fishing enthusiasts from across the country. The lazy river is home to nesting and migratory birds and can be enjoyed by boat or along the footpaths from Brigg to South Ferriby.
North Lincolnshire is the home of great golf, with no less than 8 superb courses. There are excellent leisure and sports centres, including a new all year golf and tennis centre. For the more adventurous, there's a sky diving centre, paintball and extreme sports.
One way to really unwind is to take a long distance footpath across the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds. The Nev Cole way links with the Viking Way to create an 89-mile circular walk, through wild shoreline and areas of natural beauty.
In a superb natural setting, where the rivers
Trent and Ouse join to form the Humber, Alkborough Flats is an exciting project, which helps prevent thousands of homes from flooding. The site is perfect for lovers of wildlife. By breaching the river defences new habitats have been created, which are a haven for wading birds and wildfowl, making the site an ideal area for bird watching and leisurely walks. A number of events are held at Alkborough Flats throughout the year, including group walks, bat detecting and photography sessions. Limited accessibility on some footpaths.
