Danny Walsh’s new book, Lincolnshire Heritage Walks, includes 20 walks in various parts of the county and of various lengths.

The walks are listed under sections headed The Wolds, Trent and Humber, Lincoln and the Roman South, and The Wash and Fens.

Some are long, such as the 17-mile hike through eight villages around Horncastle, while the shortest walk is just three miles and takes in Lincoln’s many heritage sites.

The descriptions of the routes cover everything from folklore, culture, wildlife, archaeology, geology and architecture, revealing the county’s past.

Each walk has a special section with suggested activities for children, such as cloud hunting, taking a large magnifying glass out on the walk to study things such as insects, flowers and architectural details close up, or playing walking bingo.

The book, published by The History Press, costs £12.99.

We have ten copies of the book to give away as prizes in the competition contained in the Spalding Guardian of October 16.
