Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
Another fantastic Finale event concluded the 10th Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival on Sunday 1 June. After a great turnout for the festival Launch at Healing Manor Hotel on Saturday 17 May, the biggest event programme to date included 130 walks plus 6 bike rides, taking people out and about throughout the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and beyond.
Our Facebook page has lots of photographs from the event, take a look or even upload images of your own from walks you attended. Of course we also want to hear about your experiences, please go to our feedback page to find out more about how you can contribute to our evaluation of this year's event (and be entered into our prize draw to win a fabulous hamper of local produce donated by Lincolnshire Co-operative Ltd).
Thank you to everyone who took part in this year's festival. Literally hundreds of people give their time: leading and supporting walks or providing special events and refreshments, and the event wouldn't happen without this support. We are also hugely grateful to the funders who make the festival possible, a great partnership of local authorities, local businesses and charities.
Most of our walks are free, with local organisations benefiting from donations to their causes. This year we launched the opportunity for people to donate directly to the festival to help us continue to provide this popular event. We will be delighted if you wish to contribute to our festival in this way, just click on the Donate button on this page.

Launched in 2005, the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival is amongst the largest of its kind in England. Jointly managed by Heritage Lincolnshire and the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, this is 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.
