Lincolnshire Ramblers

Lincs Area RA


radio4_ramblingsClare Balding, the BBC presenter spent the day on 5th October walking in the hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds with Louise Niekirk, Project Officer from the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and local residents Mike Garrs and Pete Skipworth.
 Mike had contacted Radio 4 suggesting they should come to the Lincolnshire Wolds. 
He said, “ I am delighted they came out and are genuinely interested in a part of the country not previously known to them. ”
 Louise said;
 “ We were delighted to show Clare just how hilly parts of the Wolds are. We walked along the western edge of the Wolds from Tealby to Normanby le Wold, then continued to Nettleton. We had a lovely walk – on a very blustery day ! ”
 Some of the highlights of the walk included the Ramblers’ Church at Walesby, the highest point in eastern England near Normanby le Wold, which at over 500 feet is officially classed as a Marilyn (the better known Munroes are over 1,000 feet), as well as the old ironstone mines along the Nettleton valley.
 The Lincolnshire Wolds episode will be broadcast SATURDAY 15 OCTOBER at 6.00am
with the repeat on Thursday 20 October at 3pm. Alternatively, catch up on the BBC iPlayer.
