It’s time to get your walking boots dusted off and laces tied up, fill those water bottles to the brim, and get your cameras ready as the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival begins.

It will take you on over 120 walks, events and outdoor activities over 16 days in the beautiful county.

With walks ranging from 0.5 to 17 miles there is something for all ages and abilities, including routes which are suitable for wheelchair users and accessible with pushchairs.

The festival, which is one of the largest and best-attended events of its kind in the UK, starts on Saturday (May 18), with a launch event in Legbourne, near Louth, and concludes with a finale event at Scrivelsby Estate on June 2.

All are invited to join in with relaxed strolls, challenging hikes, activity walks, themed walks, tours and taster sessions.

To celebrate its 15th anniversary, this year’s festival also includes a range of outdoor activities, as well as over 50 fun-filled family events.
