Case Studies

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.

Full Description

 This project extends the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival over a 4 year period until 2013. Each year a Festival programme will be created and marketed attracting thousands of visitors to the Lincolnshire Wolds in the centre of the Lindsey Action Zone LEADER area. The Project Officer, based in Louth will work with local businesses and accommodation providers for the benefit of all involved.


The Lindsey Action Zone has been awarded £2m to manage a new European LEADER programme.  We expect to be able to formally launch the programme and receive outline applications for funding in Summer 2015.
