A Boot Up the Lincolnshire Wolds
A Boot Up the Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Description

The Lincolnshire Wolds comprise an area of approximately 216 square miles / 558 square kilometres. In recent years the delights of its quiet, unspoilt countryside which offer great walking opportunities have become better known and appreciated.

The Wolds were designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB) in 1973. They 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.

Halsgrove’s 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.

Hugh Marrows has lived in Lincolnshire all his life. He is married with two grown up children. He spent his working life in the civil service where for many years his job involved much travel throughout the county of Lincolnshire and from his experiences sprang an interest in the county’s diverse landscape, architecture and history.

His love of the outdoors and country walking readily combined with an interest in photography and the recording of the visible heritage of Lincolnshire’s archaeological remains, churches, vernacular buildings and remnants of its industrial past such as canals and railways. He had the good fortune (as he will readily admit) to retire early, something that allowed him both the time and opportunity to pursue these interests more fully and to begin writing about them in various county magazines and local newspapers.
