A Rasen area ice cream maker is preparing to come face to face with a caveman as the Wolds Walking Festival gets under way.

Willingham Fayre will be one of those providing refreshments at the launch event for the 11th Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival at Welton le Wold Quarry on May 16.

This Site of Special Scientific Interest, normally closed to the public, is an internationally important geological heritage site.

Visitors will be able to choose from a varied programme of walks which explore the geology, history, and flora and fauna of the area.

A family-friendly day out, Snakshak and Willingham Fayre Ice Cream will provide refreshments and children can enjoy pond-dipping in a Lincolnshire Chalk Stream and digging in an archaeological sand pit,

And Pre-history expert, Will Lord, will be demonstrating Stone Age flint-napping techniques, dressed exactly as our ancestors might have looked thousands of years ago.

The Festival itself will see people of all ages enjoy more than 100 walks over the two-week event, from short and relaxed ambles to ambitious leg-stretchers across the length and breadth of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

And there are some cycle rides too for those who prefer two wheels to two feet.
