Avoid the motorway ;) lol no but if you go on maps on android you can put it so it gets a route for walkers and how long the trip will take x

Any guide a walk to Skegness will be out of date as there is a new crossing of the Trent at Torksey. eg

 

Mostly footpath/towpath/bridleway

Sheffield to Halfway to Killamarsh

Follow Chesterfield Canal(route) to Kiverton Bridge

Use Chesterfield Canal towpath to Retford then Welham.

Minor road and path to Ratcliffe Sluice

Along the Trent to Torksey

To Lincoln

Viking Way to Horncastle

to Skegness

For Lincolnshire routes use this link

 

Or

 

Cycle Route mostly minor roads and bridleways

6 from Rotherham/Sheffield

647 across Fledborough

64 to Lincoln

1 to Spilsby to Skegness

 

Avoid A57 at Dunham

Cycle routes are often easier walking.

Canal towpaths are not usually Public Rights of Way so do not appear on OS maps
