After Thoresby Bridge the canal skirts around the village of Fulstow, only a footbridge here to cross the canal.
|Viewed from the footbridge, the canal coming from Thoresby Bridge.
|This shows the footbridge over the Louth canal here at Fulstow.
|A drain comes into the canal at this point.
|There is a footpath along the whole length of the Louth canal. Anyone can walk
the whole length of 11 miles, if so inclined.

Fire Beacon Road crossing, near Covenham.
There's not a lot to see here, but the village of Fulstow is just a short distance away.
|This private residential house in Fulstow was once a village pub.

From the start of this project I had the intention of including local points of interest along the way, not just items relating to the Louth Navigation Canal.
Between Fulstow and the next village, Ludborough, is the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway. A heritage preserved railway. Once part of the Great Northern Railway it went from Cleethorpes to Boston. It finally closed in December 1980 but a group of volunteers rescued part of the track and they now run steam hauled rides between Ludborough station and North Thoresby.
The next few photo's have been taken on previous visits over the years.
|A Diesel shunter, most days the trains are hauled by steam locomotives.
