Going the Extra Mile with Lincolnshire Walking Boost

Lincolnshire residents and visitors will benefit from two new walking initiatives.

The Visit Lincolnshire website, which has been viewed over a million times in the last 6 months, has been significantly updated with detailed walking routes to inspire more visitors to explore Lincolnshire’s great outdoors. 

Walk routes, nature trails and pathways can be accessed at www.visitlincolnshire.com and offer visitors a more immersive and user-friendly experience.

Features include:

– printable routes

– walk search by location or preferred scenery (e.g. coast, countryside, nature reserves)

– information on route length, difficulty level, terrain and average completion time

– details such as whether the route is dog-friendly or accessible via public transport and information about other attractions nearby.

Simultaneously, Lincolnshire County Council has allocated £350,000 to be spent in the next two years on improving walking routes in the county – aimed at improving access to the countryside, encouraging sustainable travel and boosting tourism. Initial works being considered include path surfacing works, clearing vegetation and better signage.

Cllr Colin Davie, executive councillor for economy and place at the county council, said:

“These initiatives will benefit both residents and visitors to Lincolnshire. There is so much of our wonderful landscape that remains relatively unknown, and walking offers a great way to discover it.  

“The Visit Lincolnshire website already provides a wealth of information and ideas for those looking to explore the county, and the new walking routes will really enhance that offer. By providing visitors with a seamless experience, they can plan their stay and activities based on their own circumstances and needs.”
