Uncover history of Lincolnshire Wolds


A new two year lottery funded project to help people learn more about the Lincolnshire Wolds has been launched.

Down Your Wold is being organised by the Heritage Lottery, Wolds Countryside Service and hosted by Heritage Lincolnshire. The project aims to inspire local people to explore the hidden heritage of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Anyone can take part and give as little or as much time as possible, from attending talks and events to playing a lead role in their own community heritage projects.

Sam Phillips, Down Your Wold Project Officer, is keen to hear from interested residents: “The project has such an open remit that it is down to Lincolnshire Wolds communities to decide what they would like to explore.

“The project will play a very important part in documenting Lincolnshire’s heritage and has access to many professionals and resources. My role is to support residents in their research and discovery.”

Volunteers will have opportunities such as visits to the Lincolnshire archives, taking part in archaeology surveys, reading landscapes, documenting local wildlife and learning how to date historical buildings.
