Our walk will visit:

Enjoy coffee/tea and cake whilst gathering and learn about the Lincolnshire Rising and the role the vicar of Belchford played in that event.

Walk to Scamblesby St Martin

Take in the stunning views of Lincolnshire Wolds from the churchyard. Discover the treasures to be found within the church. We will be given welcoming drinks and snacks.

Walk to Fulletby St Andrew

Who was Henry Winn and what is his record breaking entry in Guinness Book of Records. We will also enjoy a snack stop with hot drinks.

Return walk to Belchford Blue Bell Inn

Welcoming drink by a roaring fire with optional meal to round off the day.

This event is hosted by St Peter & St Paul

Nicholas Leache, rector of Belchford in 1536, was one of the ringleaders in the Lincolnshire Rising in which 3,000 people marched through the county to protest against closure of the monasteries by Henry VIII.
