Wonderful winter walking

29 November 2017

There’s nothing more invigorating than a walk on a cold winter’s day, so why not put on your hat, scarf and boots and venture out?

Whatever your age, interests or mobility, the council’s Countryside Services Team is there to help you get out and about in the Lincolnshire landscape.

Our walk leaflets

Covering the best of the county’s diverse landscape, wildlife and heritage, each has a map, easy-to-follow directions and information on points of interest. Why not try a bracing walk along the beach in the Coastal Country Park, or a warming walk across the rolling hills and hidden valleys of the Lincolnshire Wolds?

An online access map

If you prefer to plan your own seasonal stroll, you’ll be pleased to know there are 2,500 miles of public rights of way across the county waiting for you to explore. The online countryside access map shows them all and enables you to measure and print routes.

Easy short walks

If you, a family member or friend is less mobile, or you’re looking for an easy short walk, the Countryside for All leaflets could be for you. They show detailed access information such as path surfaces and slopes so you can decide if the route is suitable for you.

Good for mind and body

One regular walker who loves to walk throughout the year is Pete Ashmore, from Lincoln.

“I started serious walking only five years ago, aged 59, as I needed to build up stamina and lose weight,” he says.

“Walking the same route in all four seasons is like walking four different routes, as each has its own beauty. There are fresh greens in Spring, vibrant colours in Summer, the magnificent colours of Autumn and the crisp frosty days of Winter - plus the occasional blanket of snow!”

Pete adds: “I love solo walking as much as group walking - it’s good for the mind as well as the body. I’ve lost three stone in weight, I’m a lot fitter than I was, and my cholesterol and blood sugar levels are under control.”

Recently, Pete became one of the county council’s countryside access volunteers, surveying rights of way and helping to keep paths open and easy for others to use
