Make your new year’s resolution a walk in the park!

We all know that walking is good for us. Proven to be one of the best types of exercise, it can improve heart health, speed up the metabolism and improve your mood. So if your new year’s resolution is to do more of it, then help is at hand thanks to the return of two popular walking festivals which are co-ordinated by Heritage Lincolnshire.

Following on from the success of the festivals in 2017, which attracted over 4,000 participants in total, Heritage Lincolnshire have announced dates for the 2018 walking festivals:

The Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, delivered in partnership with Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, will run from 19th May until 3rd June. The festival will offer more than 100 walks over 16 days in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The South Lincolnshire Walking Festival will run from 29th September until 28th October with walks taking place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

This year, the aim is to encourage more people to join in a walk, as part of Lincolnshire County Council’s three-year Access Lincoln project, supported by the Department of Transport

Walking Festival Co-ordinator Natalie Lunt said:

“Our two walking festivals offer long and short walks for all ages and abilities in spring and autumn. All walks are led by local, expert volunteers and many are ‘talking walks’ where leaders will be sharing information about the local area and points of interest. Some of the walks also involve some exciting activities and events for all the family, so get those walking boots ready!”


If you or your organisation are interested in leading a walk for the South Lincolnshire Walking Festival, your business would like a walk to start or finish at their premises, or you would like your business to feature in the brochure please get in touch by email at or phone 01529 461499.
