Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
We're just getting into our stride!
The 2017 festival is fast approaching and we've got a lively programme of 103 walks lined up for you. Launching on Saturday 20 May from the village of Claxby, nestled close to the Viking Way long distance footpath. We are delighted to announce that Toby Dennis, Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, will be formally opening our event and joining us on one of our walks that day. After 16 days of walking we conclude the festival with a brilliant finale at Tetford, near Horncastle, another handsome village set in a classic undulating Wolds landscape.
In between times there will be a rich variety of long walks, short walks, evening walks, night walks and plenty of activities such as bughunting, bushcraft, quiz walks and challenges to keep your family entertained.

Charging for Walks
You may be aware that we are introducing charges for the 2017 programme. Only around half of our walks will have a fixed cost and we hope you will feel able to make a donation for other walks. We have kept the charges very low (£2 upwards) and every penny will contribute towards festival costs and also to good causes supported by our volunteer walk leaders. For more information please go to the Taking Part section of the website.
If you have any questions about the festival then please do make contact, we'd love to hear from you.
