Starting on Saturday 8 July, the North Kesteven Walking Festival is set to be its best yet with 2 full weeks of walking and family fun for all ages!
North Kesteven is privileged to a vast open countryside with fascinating heritage and diverse wildlife. The NK Walking Festival aims to showcase these opportunities bringing them to you to enjoy the great outdoors. The NK Walking Festival will take place from Saturday 8 to Saturday 22 July and is packed full of walks across the district designed for all ages and abilities to enable as many people as possible to take part. Each walk will be led by a walk leader with the majority of walks free to attend.
Popular walks so far include herb walks with herbalist Hannah Sylvester on Saturday 8, 15 & 22 July, An Introduction to Bloxholm Wood on Saturday 8 July, Templars on the Heath on Monday 10 July, and Whisby Pie Night on Thursday 20 July. Event organisers have doubled the walk programme again this year with nearly 40 walks available showcasing what the district has to offer as well as being able to offer longer walks including evening and weekend walks.
