Put on your walking boots and discover more of Lincolnshire this autumn with the help of a new book from local author Hugh Marrows.

Walks for all Ages - Lincolnshire features 20 circular walks of up to six miles suitable for all the family that have been carefully chosen to deliver an enjoyable day or half day in the countryside.

Describing the local area at the start of each walk, Hugh then provides a detailed description of the walk with snippets of information as you go along.

The book also features Ordnance Survey mapping and handy information such as the gradient and severity of the walk, whether the walks are dog friendly plus details of nearby pubs and cafes.

Walks featured include Boston & Anton’s Gowt, Tattershall and Coningsby, Barton-on-Humber, Haxey, and Well and Rigsby.

Hugh Marrows has lived in Lincolnshire all his life. His working life was spent in the civil service, where for many years his job involved a great deal of travelling throughout the county, and it is from that time that he developed his interest in Lincolnshire’s diverse landscape, architecture and all aspects of its history and heritage.

With a long-standing love of the outdoors and an interest in photography he naturally came to appreciate the visual archaeological heritage that Lincolnshire offers, in addition to its churches, vernacular buildings and the industrial legacy of its mills, canals and long-lost railways.

Hugh has had several books published including a guide to the Viking Way for Lincolnshire County Council, two books devoted to walks on the Lincolnshire Wolds, and two others of general walks throughout the county plus one based entirely around the Grantham Canal.

Published by Bradwell Books, Walks for all Ages: Lincolnshire is out now priced £4.99.
