‘Cad­well Park is only a few miles from here and the A153 is a fun road’

If you hap­pen to be pass­ing Peter­bor­ough on the A1 to Hull or North York­shire, and you fancy an al­ter­na­tive route rather the dreary 60mph slog up the A1/M18 or A15, then this is the route for you.

Get­ting to Bos­ton from the A1 means skirt­ing Peter­bor­ough and fol­low­ing the ar­row-straight A15 past Spald­ing. North of Bos­ton is where the fun starts. Pick up the B1183 flash­ing across the flat miles (hump­back bridge apart) through New Bol­ing­broke to­wards Revesby ( Trans­porter fans, note the VW garage). Over the stag­gered cross­roads to­wards Horn­cas­tle, link­ing curves to­gether as you climb into the Lin­colnshire Wolds, tak­ing in sharp bends and mul­ti­ple com­plex cor­ners.

At Horn­cas­tle, pop into the School House Cof­fee Bar for cake and a brew, then head west onto the A158 for a cou­ple of miles, sign­posted Lin­coln – although Cad­well Park is only a few miles from here and the A153 north from Horn­cas­tle is a fun road (po­liced with mo­bile speed cam­eras on race week­ends, so watch out) – there’s usu­ally some­thing go­ing down at the cir­cuit, and track days are free for spec­ta­tors so it’s worth pop­ping in.

Back on the A158 out of Horn­cas­tle, then peel off onto the B1225 head­ing to­wards Cais­tor for 20 miles of hec­tic bends and fast, flow­ing romps across the rolling rooftops of the Wolds. Then it’s onto Thoresway, straight on, peel right at the fork onto a back road that takes you through dense woods down to Hum­ber Air­port and fi­nally pick up the A18 for the Hum­ber Bridge.
