Staff and student walking excursion

Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra

On Saturday the 16th of February 2019, a small group of staff and students of the School of Maths and Physics went for an easy hike through southern central Lincoln. From the university, we walked south till Morrisons, before leaving the road for the fields and farmland.



After reaching the woods, we followed the path leading to Hartsholme Country Park, famous for its lakes and the White Bridge.


Upon leaving the park, we headed back to the city via the scenic route along the Catchwater dyke (here one has great views of the cathedral), before joining River Witham and following the river back to the university.
