A Boot Up the Lincolnshire Wolds

A Boot Up the Lincolnshire Wolds

The Wolds were designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB) in 1973 and are made up of Cretaceous rocks, primarily chalk but with some limestone in the south. These dip towards the east, where many glacial valleys divide the gentler slopes, but conversely create a steep scarp slope to the west.
The Wolds therefore present an extremely attractive walking environment that is rarely very demanding given that the highest point is 551 feet (168 metres).The hills do however appear higher in places for the Wolds are surrounded by the low-lying land of the coastal marshes to the east and the “fen-like” valleys of the Rivers Witham and Ancholme to the west.
All the walks have been carefully selected to give as wide as possible an overview of this lovely part of Lincolnshire balanced with an attempt to explore some of its lesser-known areas. They range in distance from 4 to 10 miles and are ideal for families and groups of friends.
The 10 walks included are centred on:
  • Caistor and Nettleton 
  • Swallow and Irby Dales
  • Tealby and Risby
  • Fotherby and North Elkington
  • Donington-on-Bain and Biscathorpe
  • Aby, Haugh and South Thoresby
  • Tetford, Bag Enderby and Somersby
  • Horncastle and Mareham-on-the-Hill
  • Partney, Dalby and Langton
  • Rothwell to Normanby-le-Wold.

This excellent small format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the Lincolnshire Wolds.
