Lincolnshire Wolds videos

Earlier this month I noticed three rather nice videos on Youtube promoting the Lincolnshire Wolds which have now been compiled into one feature. There are quite a few scenes shot on our patch, dotted around the three original films, so it’s worth staying with it to the end. Why not sit back, take your mind off mustard gas down in the woods and see how many places or people you recognise!

Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days: September 7 -10, 2017

 

Heritage Open Days celebrates England’s architecture and culture by allowing visitors free access to interesting properties that are not usually publicly accessible or would normally charge a fee. It also includes tours, events and activities that focus on and celebrate the local heritage of the area. Since 1994 Heritage Lincolnshire has coordinated Heritage Open Days within the historic county.  This year’s festival will be one of the biggest yet, with over 140 free events. The theme is Freedom, Justice & Equality to mark the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest, a copy of which is held alongside Magna Carta at Lincoln Castle.

The festival brochure was launched at the Lincolnshire Show on 21st June. It is also available from libraries, tourist information centres and heritage sites across the county and from our offices in Heckington. You can also download a printable copy here.
