On Friday 1st June members of the project team organised an event as part of the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival.

The event allowed people to come and learn about the history of the station and it’s importance to the town. Those in attendance were able to enjoy a 1.5 mile walk, this was made even more enjoyable because of the glorious weather we had on the day. As the route started and ended at the station there was also an opportunity for a guided tour of the station building and a chance to ask questions to some of the Lindum employees who were in attendance.

Our Heritage Officer Hazel Barnard led the tour, and throughout the route paused at regular intervals to explain the history of the town and the significance of some of the buildings. Hazel brought with her old photos and other artefacts to allow participants to fully appreciate the heritage of the station and the town.

Daniel Clark who works in the Marketing team at the Lindum Group assisted Hazel on the tour and was on hand to answer any questions about the project.

Below shows the route of the walk.
