Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
We celebrate our 10th birthday this year! The 2014 festival will be the biggest to date, with 128 walks over 16 days around the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (and a little bit beyond). From accessible ambles around historic market towns to rigorous rambles clocking up the miles, you are guaranteed to find something right up your street!
Festival Dates 2014
Saturday 17 May to Sunday 1 June
The festival launches on Saturday 17 May at Healing Manor Hotel near Grimsby, offering lots of fun activities as well as great walks. Visitors can experience a guided cycle ride and be the first to try out our hi-tech Geocache treasure trail, tasters for just some of the family-friendly initiatives that the festival is adding to its programme for 2014.
The festival Finale is also ‘going large' this year, hosted by newly-formed Horncastle Walkers Are Welcome. A weekend of events will include an open day at Snipe Dales Country Park and craft fair and evening barbeque at the Sir Joseph Banks Centre on Saturday 31 May followed by the now traditional Finale on Sunday 1 June, which consists of working up an appetite on a good walk and then celebrating with cake at the end!
SOME BACKGROUND ABOUT OUR FESTIVAL
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.
