Starting from the War Memorial on the Village Green, proceed along the Green footpath to pass the Godson Almshouses. On to Church Street in the direction of the Church of Saint Andrew, call in and have a look at this magnificent building before crossing the Churchyard into Cameron Street to admire the other Godson Almshouses. Continue in an easterly direction to the junctions with Eastgate/Vicarage Road where you will note the former St Andrew’s Church of England County Primary School – now occupied by Heritage Lincolnshire as their headquarters.
Turning into Vicarage Road, at the junction with Kyme Road, Howell Road and Cowgate you will see on your left Saint Andrew’s Church of England Primary School and playing field. The bungalow behind the high privet hedge stands on the site of the old Heckington Gas Works demolished in the 1960s.
Walk east along Kyme Road for about a hundred & fifty yards to a vehicular access on the left. Walking along this public footpath will take you through the Elm Holt nature area. Turn right on the footpath to join with Kyme Road again at the junction with Foster Street. Turn left to the bypass fly-over bridge, which takes you over the A17. Continue for several hundred yards to a gated/stile on the left, which is signposted in a northerly direction towards the water treatment works as a public footpath.
Upon reaching the treatment works the public footpath runs easterly along the bank of Heckington Eau and to Fenside and the ancient Carr Dyke where you can either continue in the direction of South Kyme or turn southeast along the Carr Dyke back in the direction of Heckington.
The public footpath runs along the back lanes of Star Fen to eventually rejoin Littleworth Drove, which has a wide grass verge to walk along and back to the bridge over the A17. You can now retrace your steps back along Kyme Road. Turn off left at the long right hand bend and go down the lane which brings you out at the very east end of Cameron Street.
Walking back up the street you will pass the high brick wall that encloses Heckington Hall once the home of local benefactor William Little. Follow the wall round the corner a hundred yards to the Hall gates then cross the road to go down Saint Andrew’s Street. As you approach the church again on your left is the parish council office and civic centre, which was once a chapel. To the right and on the other side of the driveway is the house, which used to be the Police Station; the cells have walls eighteen inches thick. Turn left and back onto Church Street and as you continue back to the Village Green on the left you will pass the elegant Methodist Church that replaced the one down Saint Andrew’s Street.
