The Elms Retirement Village enjoys its own private stretch of canal bank offering peaceful walks together with private fishing.
The floating pontoon moorings at The Elms Retirement Park make the perfect base for boaters to explore. With superb onsite facilities including electricity hook up, water and pump out sewerage facilities at Torksey Lock, car parking and a fully secure entrance, Elms moorings is the perfect secure facility for your boat. Open to residents of The Elms but also non-residents too.
The Fossdyke Navigation passes through mostly rural surroundings until it reaches the city of Lincoln. The landscape is mainly flat but offers amazing views of the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening, and the local landscapes. Views from the canal include the gothic Lincoln Cathedral and the area of the battle of Lincoln.
The local area is steeped in history with its Roman and Saxon links and there is plenty to see, do and explore in this beautiful heart of rural Lincolnshire.
Things to do
Within the immediate area of Torksey there is a collection of places to eat and drink, including the recently refurbished Hume Arms in the centre of the village, The White Swan on the other side of the Lock or the Wheelhouse Restaurant on the lock side. For a smaller bite to eat and a good English cup of tea, why not try the Tea Rooms at Torksey Lock.
For those who like an afternoon of Golf, Lincoln Golf Club is a short distance from The Elms Moorings. A superb, tree-lined 18- hole parkland golf course with an outstanding reputation and which is renowned for being a 12 month a year course.
Nature walkers and off road cyclists can take advantage of this rural region by navigating the Fossdyke Canal Trail, which joins the National Cycle Route 64 shortly after Burton Waters. Or there is an abundance of local footpaths and organised walks also in the area.
