SLWF is back for a fourth year!
Think Lincolnshire is flat? Think again!
From the Lincoln Edge in the west to the Fenlands of the east South Lincolnshire has an extremely varied landscape that has witnessed Bronze Age burials, Iron Age mints, roman forts, the Knights Templar, castles and abbeys. But the festival isn’t only for history lovers! Whether you want to roam with Ramblers, have an adventure with your kids, get snapping on a photography foray or take you pooch out for a guided ‘walkies’, there’s something for everyone. The walks will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays so that those who work or want to involve the family don’t miss out.
Following the success of the 2017 festival when over 1,000 walkers enjoyed the delights of the Lincolnshire countryside by taking part in the 56 walks. We are delighted to announce that planning for the fourth SLWF has begun.
The festival will run between Saturday 29rd September – Sunday 28th October. The walks will take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays so that those who work or want to involve the family don’t miss out.
If you would like to make a walk submission please get in touch and submit your registration form before the extended deadline of Monday 7th May 2018

Please donate towards the festival and brochure
Walks either have a small cost attached to them or they invite voluntary donations towards the Walking Festival and other local good causes. If a walk carries a charge it is clearly marked . The following apply to all charged walks: £2 for 0 – 3 miles and£3.50 for over 3 miles. Under 18’s go free.
Charges may vary for special events, please see individual walk listings for details. Payment should be made in cash on the day –please help our walk leaders by bringing the correct change! Walks which invite donations are clearly marked . Donations are greatly appreciated; 100% of the money raised goes to the South Lincolnshire Walking Festival (SLWF), or where stated, donations are split 50/50 betweenthe festival and the walk leader’s affiliated charity.
South Lincolnshire Walking Festival is co-ordinated by Heritage Lincolnshire, a local charity. Although the festival is heavily reliant on volunteers, it costs in excess of £20,000 to deliver the festival each year. We rely on the income from walks charges and donations in order to cover the costs of running the festival and ensure we can keep it going for the future.
As with many other organisations, we’re seeing times getting much tougher. We are delighted that many of our walks continue to be donations-only* but, without YOUR support, the walking festival is at risk. Please will you donate a minimum £3 (or more if you can afford it) towards the production of the festival and brochure?
You can donate here or by sending a cheque, payable to ‘Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire’ and marked ‘SLWF’ on the reverse, to our address at: The Old School House, Cameron Street, Heckington, SLEAFORD, Lincs NG34 9RW.
