Then you will love travelling around Lincolnshire’s West Lindsey Churches Festival visiting some of the many churches that are taking part in the first ever 'Sconeathon'.
Over the weekends of 11th to 12th May and 18th to 19th May, nearly half of the churches open are offering mouth watering scones to keep you nourished during your visits.
Scones originated in Scotland in the early 1500s. They were originally made with oats and baked on a griddle. In the late 1700s the Duchess of Bedford, on feeling hungry one afternoon, requested her servants to bring her tea and some sweet breads. She was so delighted by this treat that she ordered it every afternoon, a tradition that became known as Afternoon Tea.
Our churches have risen to the Sconeathon Challenge and created some wonderful recipes, both traditional and unusual.
Which variety will be the festival favourite?
