Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
News update - due to the sad loss of Hilary Healey who passed away suddenly, walk number 33 'Steeped in History' due to take place on 23rd May has been cancelled.
Thank you for visiting our website. The 2013 Festival is now underway! There is still time for you to take part as for most of our walks you just have to turn up, with no advance booking. Take a look around the site, which should provide all the information you need to inspire you to take part in this great annual event in the Lincolnshire Wolds, Lincolnshire's only Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
If you have taken part in any of our walks and didn't choose to fill out a feedback form at the time, we encourage you to do so now, using our downloadable form and then sending it back to our Freepost address. It won't cost you a penny and if you fill in your name and contact details you will be automatically entered into a free prize draw for a fabulous hamper of Lincolnshire produce courtesy of the Lincolnshire Co-operative Ltd.
Your feedback can be anonymous, but all feedback is hugely valuable in helping us improve and evolve the festival as well as demonstrating to our funders that everyone's aims for the event are being met.
If you wish to access the feedback form in a different format then please contact us on 01507 609740 or via the Contact Page to let us know.
Launched in 2005, the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival is amongst the largest of its kind in England. 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, we create a lively programme of walks designed to get you out and about in this beautiful and varied landscape.
This year's festival launches on Saturday 18 May from the historic Scrivelsby Estate near the market town of Horncastle, and we will celebrate 16 days of intensive walking at our finale event in Walkers Are Welcome town Market Rasen on Sunday 2 June.
This will be our biggest festival to date, with just over 100 walks available and equating to around 540 miles of walking. Our walks range from gentle one mile strolls on flat terrain (accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs), to energetic day-long treks up to 20 miles in length. For the really ambitious we even offer a 36 mile walk, over two days with an overnight stop in-between!

We hope to see you during the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival 2013.
