Summary: The Nev Cole Way is a long distance walk in the north of Lincolnshire which is a tribute to one of the regions most popular ramblers. It was devised by the Wanderlust Rambling Club which was formed in 1932 by Nev Cole. As the Wanderlust membership attests 'It celebrates his life, the creation of the Club and Nev's friends in the Ramblers Association groups but not least, the Wanderlust Rambling Club of Grimsby'. The way starts at Burton upon Stather where it includes the beautiful scarp slope of the Jurassic Ridge overlooking the River Trent for a few miles until it joins the River Humber. It then follows the south bank of the Humber, through Barton upon Humber to North Killingholme Haven, passing through a mixture of wild shoreline and countryside. It follows a more inland route from East Halton to the outskirts of Grimsby where it turns inland along the River Freshney. It then passes through low lying farmland and gradually moves into the beautiful and gently sloping Lincolnshire Wolds, passing through several small Wolds villages to Nettleton.
