One of the largest walking festivals in the UK starts on Saturday 17th May and you can ‘take the train for a walk’ to the Launch Day event! 

The Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary this year with 130 events taking place from Saturday 17th May to Sunday 1st June. 

The walk is an easy 5½ mile linear route along public footpaths from Habrough station to Healing.
 
STUART PARKER, walk leader and Chairman of the Festival Partnership said : 

“ You can catch the East Midlands Train departing Lincoln at 08.15, Market Rasen at 08.32, Barnetby at 08.50 to Habrough. 
Then after a visit to the Launch Day events at Healing Manor, catch the Stagecoach No.45 bus service, every 30 minutes, into Grimsby to take the EMT train back to Lincoln departing Grimsby Town station at 13.49, 16.00 or 18.28. ” 

“ All are welcome. The walk is free but train fares apply.”
