Green motif on white disc with black nameSpires and Steeples Arts & Heritage Trail

40 km / 25 miles

From Lincoln running south to Sleaford the Spires & Steeples route across North Kesteven was put together to make it easier for visitors and residents to find their way from village to village to discover their artistic and historical treasures. The name refers to the Spires of churches being the landmarks to which visitors make their way and to the rural sport of Steeple chasing. North Kesteven does not have a wealth of dramatic scenery, cliffs and mountains, but it does have a rich history and heritage, stories that are part of the fabric of Lincolnshire and intertwined with the character of its landscape, flat fens and heath, reflecting open, changing skies.
