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!

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