Market Rasen pupils have taken part in a whole school walk across the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Students and staff at Market Rasen De Aston School ventured out on an 12-mile trek - and had an exciting day in the sunshine.

They stopped for a picnic between Claxby and Walesby before continuing along a section of the Viking Way.

Pupils and teachers then walked out to Tealby and back to school through Willingham Woods.

Staff member Chris Higgins played an important part in planning this year’s walking route.

He did a lot of research and discovered that the students were around 420 feet above ground level at the highest point.

Mr Higgins, colleague Jamie Johnson and the school’s 2013 ‘world challenge’ fundraising team led the way for the rest of the pupils and staff.

The Wold walk has been running bi-annually for 40 years.

Deputy headteacher Julie Taylor, who was one of the main organisers of this year’s walk, said: “The Wold walk went extremely well.

“The students really enjoyed the opportunity to walk through the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside, particularly in such wonderful weather.”
