SLWF save the date 2016

Yes it’s true! We’re back again this autumn with more fantastic walks in North Kesteven, South Kesteven, Boston and South Holland each Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 24th September and 30th October.

Our pilot festival in 2015 was a huge success attracting over 1400 walkers (and dogs!) of all ages on over 70 walks. If you want to keep up to date with what’s happening you can sign up for updates on the home page and if you want to lead a walk please drop us a line to slwf@heritagelincolnshire.org – we’d love to hear from you!

In the meantime don’t forget our sister festival, the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival that starts on 21st May.

“Launching from the pretty village of Donington-on-Bain we can promise 16 days of really good walking in and around the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, until our festival finale at Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens National Trust property on 5 June.We’ve got 114 great walks in the pipeline for this year’s festival, ranging from energetic day-long rambles to gentle strolls, plus lots of activities to involve all the family. Our event is 12 years old this year, but we’ve still got new and interesting walks to offer, as well as some old favourites.

Access for Everyone is a key theme in 2016 and we’re delighted that, along with a dementia-friendly walk, some of our events will be especially accessible for people using mobility aids. Local company TerrainHopper will even be offering free tasters of their fabulous all-terrain mobility vehicles.

Lincolnshire’s long-distance footpath, the Viking Way, reaches its 40th anniversary in 2016 and we’ll be celebrating with over 30 walks during the festival. If you like a real challenge then why not sign up to take part in the Lincs Wolds Way, a 75-mile circular walk around the Wolds, in six day-long linear sections. We provide the transport so you can do the walking!

There are plenty of evening events so you can fit in a walk after the day-job, and two Night Walks, back after popular demand in 2015. For families why not plan to join Louth District Scouts and experience Orienteering, or visit Snipe Dales Country Park for a family day with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. The festival brochure will be available to download or pick up from early March.”
