Wolds Walking Festival

 

LINCOLNSHIRE WOLDS WALKINGFESTIVAL

Welcome to our new Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival website. We aim to provide all the information you need to inspire you to take part in this great annual event in theLincolnshire Wolds, Lincolnshire's only Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Launched in 2005, the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival is amongst the largest of its kind in England. A hands-on partnership between voluntary walk leaders from a range of organisations and the local authorities situated within the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we create a lively programme of walks designed to get you out and about in this beautiful and varied landscape.

This year's festival launches on Saturday 18 May from the historic Scrivelsby Estate near the market town of Horncastle, and we will celebrate 16 days of intensive walking at our finale event in Walkers Are Welcome town Market Rasen on Sunday 2 June.

This will be our biggest festival to date, with just over 100 walks available and equating to around 540 miles of walking. Our walks range from gentle one mile strolls on flat terrain (accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs), to energetic day-long treks up to 20 miles in length. For the really ambitious we even offer a 36 mile walk, over two days with an overnight stop in-between!

To find out more about this year's festival, our special offers, previous events and our supporters, just click on the relevant links. You can download the full brochure here or contact us to join our mailing list.

We hope to see you during the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival 2013.

This project has been supported through the Rural Development Programme for England, which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union.

  • If you enjoy walking, hiking, trekking or like to find out about a new village or town, or a new national park, walking festivals are excellent ways to see the different parts of the country with local guides. These events and festivals are often organised by local people who know the walks and the areas very well and more often than not are non-profit events, meaning the walks are either free or only a small amount of money.Read more »
