THE 2017 FESTIVAL STARTS ON SATURDAY 20 MAY

We're counting down the days until we launch our 13th festival in May. The brochure is now online, as well as available to pick up in a range of venues, but we have also produced an easy-to-print listing which includes every walk. Click here to download.


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. Look out for our new 'Easy Walks' logo in the brochure, promoting walks which are great fun but not too taxing.


Any questions, comments or queries, just get in touch via the contact form. Meanwhile, we'll get on with finalising our fantastic festival so that we can all get out and about in the Lincolnshire Wolds soon!

    Family Challenge Walk

    Join this fun event hosted by Louth District Scouts at Willingham Woods. It's a great opportunity for families to spend the day together exploring the local woods and countryside with a general knowledge quiz twist.

    Teams will be given a map marked with various points across a 3 mile radius. All ages and experience are welcome as families can decide how many points they want to visit – so their walk can last from 1 hour to 3 hours. Map reading training will be given and routes checked by experts prior to departure. Although just for fun the team with the most points will win a certificate. Come along any time between 10:30am to 1 pm. Teams to be made of 1 or 2 adults and up to 4 children (max. age 16)
