Walks

Taking Part in the Festival

To help you choose your walk, we designate them either easy, moderate or energetic. An easy walk tends to be under 5 miles and on relatively flat terrain. A moderate walk will be between 5-10 miles and may include some hilly bits. A strenuous walk will tend to be 10 miles or more and may include some challenging climbs.

You can view an interactive map of walks on Heritage Lincolnshire's website.

    Self led walks from 10:30am til 16:00, pick up the clue sheet and off you go, searching for the clues about the village. All the family can take part but please keep your dog on a lead.
