Louth Ghost Walk part of Wolds Walking Festival

Lace up your shoes for the Wolds Walking Festival!

There are several interesting walks around the local area.

A Beautiful Churches of Louth walk is on Sunday May 19, at 2pm.

It will start from St James’s Church.

This six mile guided walk will visit the churches of the parish of Louth. There will be a short stop at each church with a short greeting given by a church member.

The walk will finish at St James’s in time for choral evensong.

A Vales and Views walk is on Tuesday May 21, at 10.30am, again starting from St James’s Church.

This is a seven mile circular walk from Louth, taking in the village of South Elkington, where ice cream can be bought.

The walk goes through woodlands at Welton Vale, once the main entrance to South Elkington Hall where a whale bone arc can be seen. The walk will pass a quarry which is a designated geological Site of Special Scientific Interest.

A Louth Ghost Walk is on Tuesday May 21, at 7pm.

This gentle stroll through the town, lead by Stuart Sizer, will stop at ghostly locations to hear stories.

Previous walks have seen the ghost of an old lady, so you never know what might happen!

Book a place by calling 01507 601211.

A Lost Railway Ramble is on Wednesday May 22, at 9.30am.

This challenging five mile walk will suit the adventurous. It goes along footpaths and the former railway line from Donington on Bain station to and through South Willingham Tunnel. The last train ran 54 years ago but you will hear the history of the line as you go. Take a torch.

Book a place on 01522 521337.

A Turn around Tathwell is on Sunday May 26, at 6pm, starting from St Vedast’s Church in the village.

This easy walk around the former Chaplin estate village will view landscape features, architecture and the county’s best group of round barrows. The Annual Art Exhibition will be taking place at the church and scrumptious homemade refreshments served.
