Haxey Parish ‘Easy Walking’ – Click here for website link

Haxey Parish is criss-crossed by over 40 miles of footpaths and bridleways. Walkers are faced with gentle slopes and flat fields interspersed with small woodlands (including 2 SSI sites). With the river Idle walk on the southern boundary, a delightful wooded walk along a disused railway line, a maze of ancient rights of way and 3 long distance footpaths through the area there is plenty of variety. The Parish boasts 3 pubs, 2 cafes, 2 take-away restaurants, a village hall and library, a hair dressing and nail salon and 3 general stores.

This is a rural parish, rich in wildlife over the fields and within the nature reserves.



Trolley Bus Museum Sandtoft – Click here for website link

The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft houses the world’s largest collection of historic trolleybuses and occupies almost 8 acres of what used to be RAF Sandtoft. Some of the former taxiway leading to the old airfield’s three runways forms part of the quarter-mile trolleybus circuit, around which you can experience, on open days, a trip on some of our historic trolleybuses. The large concreted area between the main trolleybus depot and the café/ shop building used to be the floor of a massive aircraft hanger.
