Walking

Louth Navigation to the Fitties Short Walk

Louth Navigation meets at the sea at Tetney Lock. This selection of walks will show you a variety of natural water features from lagoons to Blow wells. The experience is exhilarating yet tranquil, no wonder so many birds choose to live here.

  • 2Turn north (left) by the concrete "Bunker" and follow the sea bank for 1 ½ miles. Look out for Grimsby dock tower straight ahead. In the Estuary you will see the two Sand Forts. Across the Estuary is Spurn Head lighthouse.
  • 3For a short cut, after a mile, a footbridge down the bank on your left will take you back to Tetney Lock. Turn left again past the remains of Low Farm, along Newton Marsh Lane and right and left back to the Crown and Anchor.
