Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival

Funding has enabled the very popular Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival to continue and expand.   

The Lincolnshire Wolds are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lying at the heart of the Lindsey Action Zone area.  They constitute the highest ground in eastern England between Kent and Yorkshire.  

A diverse programme of walks will be coordinated by a new Project Officer to take place in May each year and to take in the attractive vistas of the Wolds and the historic market towns that surround them.  This attracts thousands of visitors many of whom take advantage of the opportunity to stay in the high quality accommodation available and to browse and shop in our historic market towns.
