SLWF is back for the second 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. The official family launch event will take place on Saturday 24th September at Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Willow Tree Fen nature reserve near Spalding and will be perfect for the whole family. Along with a launch walk and guided walks around the site there will be lots of crafts and activities for you and your family to get stuck into.

We’re part of BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s ‘Walk a Million’ campaign. Can you help Lincolnshire reach the target of walking 1,000,000 miles? Log your weekly walking totals by emailing and get the latest campaign news by listening to BBC Radio Lincolnshire, and on social media with #WalkAMillion

Please donate towards the festival and brochure

As with many other organisations, we’re seeing times getting much tougher. We are delighted that many of our walks continue to be free, or 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?

This investment will sudonate-buttonpport co-ordination and print costs so that you know what is happening and when. We are very grateful to our walk leaders and partners, who provide their time for free!

You can donate here or by sending a cheque, payable to ‘Heritage T rust of Lincolnshire’ and marked ‘SLWF’ on the reverse, to our address at: The Old School House, Cameron Street, Heckington, SLEAFORD, Lincs NG34 9RW.
