Brochure Guide

Check out the Map in the brochure to find a walk near you which takes your fancy! Walks are categorised as Easy, Moderate and Energetic dependent on length and terrain type so make sure you take a look at each walk listing for extra information so you can find the perfect walk for you. Information about where to meet, what time it starts and a description of what you will get up to on your walk is highlighted in each walk listing.

Please also refer to the symbols on the listing to the key in the brochure, which will notify you of what the walk offers, where there will be refreshments, dog friendly walks, heritage talks, if there are toilets or if you will need to bring a packed lunch with you! Symbols are also shown if the walk can be accessible to Wheelchairs and Pushchairs.

Furthermore, we are delighted to feature 13 Health Walks this year. These walks take a more relaxed approach to walking and aim to get people active and outdoors. Feel the health benefits on these walks, as they really do make a difference.

We greatly encourage families to get involved in the festival and we have 31 Family Friendly Walks to explore this year.

Check these out in the brochure to see what they have in store; there are some great days out planned!

Heritage Lincolnshire is proud to organise the South Lincolnshire Walking Festival.
