Barton Walking Festival – Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 September

The first BARTON WALKING FESTIVAL will bring together the heritage and wildlife of the surrounding areas through a series of Guided and Self-Guided walks.

Experienced and knowledgeable guides will take you on a voyage of discovery through the ages, in a number of walks through the historic market town and nearby countryside, which is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Fancy a self-guided adventure? Why not pick up one of our walk leaflets from Waters’ Edge Visitor Centre, Brigg Tourist Information Centre or one of our visitor attractions, and set off on your adventure?

Most of the walks are free of charge, but some do have a small charge. With walks for all abilities and ages why not put on your walking boots on and have a go?

Here’s the  Booklet giving more details.
