Barrow Haven walk


North Lincolnshire

Route: Barrow Haven

Area: North Lincolnshire

Date of walk: 22nd August 2014

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 7.7 miles

Weather: Cloudy but plenty of bright intervals

I parked at the viewing area near the south end of the Humber Bridge. The bridge is an wonderful spectacle – a triumph of engineering and design and a thing of beauty, and I spent some time wandering around the path which passes underneath it and gazing up in awe

Finally it was time to move on and I entered the Waters Edge Country Park. After walking through the park, there followed a short unattractive section along a road through an industrial park. I was glad when this ended and I could stride out across open farmland to Barrow Haven. Having walked through the village I joined a path which took me back to Barton along the banks of the Humber (there was a sign saying the path was closed due to flooding but luckily it wasn’t, otherwise I’d have had to retrace my steps)

I had tremendous views of the Humber Bridge all the way back to the start – when I got back, someone else was getting even better views thanks to a quadcopter with a mounted camera, see the final photos
