Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
Saturday 21 May - Sunday 5 June 2016
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Launch event on Saturday. It was a really fun and energetic day, with around 400 walkers getting into their stride. Huge thanks to the village of Donington-on-Bain for giving us all such a great welcome.
The festival is now officially open and walks are taking place across the Lincolnshire Wolds (and beyond). With something for everyone, why not come and explore this fabulous Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in great company and with our excellent volunteer walk leaders. The festival ends on Sunday 5 June at the lovely National Trust Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens near Skegness.
Most of our walks are free. To help us keep delivering the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, please consider donating £3 or more for your brochure. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We'll let you know how much we've raised at the end of the festival!

Another long walk for the festival
For anyone who thinks there are never enough miles in the day, the Long Distance Walkers Assocation will be leading a 22 mile walk 'The Dave Milne Way' on Saturday 4 June. Starting at 8.30am from Ludford Village Hall, this energetic walk will take you through pretty villages and offer some spectacular views towards Lincoln Cathedral. A lunch-time stop in Tealby means you can make the most of its pubs, tea rooms and village shop. Cold drinks and cake will be available at the end of the walk.
For further details see walk entry 95 for 4th June. This walk didn't make it into the brochure, our apologies to the LDWA.
The Lincolnshire Wolds will host the 2016 National Walkers Are Welcome Conference between 14 - 16 October next year. Caistor, Market Rasen and Horncastle Walkers Are Welcome groups are working together to create a great conference programme with walks, activities, networking and discussions galore.
