There’s more than walking to the Wolds Walking Festival - there are bike rides, history and heritage too.

In fact there is plenty on offer so get the family out and about in the fresh air this Bank Holiday weekend and see the delights of the Wolds area of outstanding natural beauty - and most activities are free.

Take part in a 12-mile heritage walk around Utterby this Saturday, May 23, or walk along the disused rail line from Fotherby.

Alternatively, head to the coast for a family-friendly stroll along the Humber Estuary at Cleethorpes to explore the plants and wildlife inhabiting the beach and sand dunes.

For history-buffs, why not follow In Henry Winn’s Footsteps around Fulletby on Sunday, May 24, and discover this local poet and man of letters?

Also on Sunday, Gunby Estate is the place to be for a walk with National Trust Food and Farming Advisor Charles Bradfield as he leads a walk through the parkland discussing the history of the working estate and modern farming in Britain today.

Violent village Victorians feature in Hemingby’s Horrible History walk on Monday, along with heritage walks at both Caistor and Market Rasen.

But if walking isn’t your thing, the festival also offers a range of bike rides, with the chance to go ‘off-road’ near Rasen this Saturday - a charge of £5 applies for this event.
