Taking Part in the Festival

This is where you will find all the information you require to take part in the 2019 15th anniversary festival. The full list of events can be found below and you can now download the brochure, to your PC or phone, using the DOWNLOAD button to the right:


*This is where you will find any amendments/updates*


*Walk #34 will now be led by Jim Snee*


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.

You can view an interactive map of walks on Heritage Lincolnshire's website. This will go live at the beginning of April.

    AND FINALLY - Discover Scrivelsby Estate & Beyond

    A rare chance to see the fascinating Scrivelsby Estate and the family that has lived and farmed here since 1066. The seat of the Queen's (or King's) Champion, Scrivelsby contains many tangible connections to Lincolnshire's historic past. A longer walk with less chat.
