Groups or businesses intending to lead walks in the first South Lincolnshire Walking Festival have to be able to use their own public liability insurance to cover the walk.

The organisers want as much variety as possible in the walks, such as heritage, wildlife, photography and potentially even a speed dating walk.

The rambles will take place at all times of day and in the evening to encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to join in.

There is a stroll as short as two miles – around historic Spalding – while the Bourne Blunder is 20 miles.

The festival will hopefully encompass the Spires & Steeples Arts & Heritage Trail challenge as well as Stamford’s Georgian Festival.

There is no limit to the number of people who can take part in the free walks.

Heritage Lincolnshire has funding for this year’s pilot festival, and if it is successful will be looking for funding for future years.

Heritage Lincolnshire’s Beverley Gormley said: “We just need lots of people to submit walks – and to turn up for them.

“We have such hidden gems in the south of the county.”
