Walk 4 – Stallingborough and The Anti Aircraft Battery

This is one of a range of walks available from Great Coates and over time we will slowly upload numerous walks onto this page for you to download and walk.

Some walks start and end in Great Coates, others will include a train journey either both ways or sometimes one way and the majority of walks include pubs, restaurants or convenience stores where you can have a meal, drink or simply a snack.

Somebody has completed each walk before being published to ensure they are manageable. You may download a leaflet for each walk containing directions and a map of the route.

To download the full route directions and map click on the image of the walk leaflet on the right hand side.

This 4 mile walk takes you from Stallingborough railway station along the railway track before coming back onto yourself and then heading out towards Little London. You’ll then walk along North Beck Drain, a pleasant stream diverting slightly off the footpath to the listed former anti aircraft battery – now overgrown but clearly visible before heading back following the banks of the stream before you head back towards Stallingborough Church arriving back at Stallingborough railway station.

This walk can be combined with a drink and refreshments at the 3 pubs all within ten minutes of the route.

A pleasant flat walk combined with some history.
