Happy jubilee birthday to you, Lincolnshire Wolds

This year the Lincolnshire Wolds marks its 50th anniversary as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – an ideal opportunity to discover more about this protected, living, working and thriving landscape!

The 50th Anniversary is a chance to celebrate all that has been achieved in working to protect and enhance the Lincolnshire Wolds, it’s habitats and physical features, it’s heritage, culture, communities and management.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Chair – Councillor Richard Avison says: “The beauty of our landscape has brought a real joy throughout recent trying times for everyone and reinvigorated the nation’s interest in our countryside. Harnessing that interest along with Government initiatives will provide an ideal opportunity to promote and celebrate our Lincolnshire Wolds AONB 50th anniversary. We look forward to seeing you at the forthcoming events, come along and enjoy a part of the countryside which we proudly represent.”

The care of the AONB has been entrusted to the local authorities, organisations, community groups and those who live and work in the area. Much of the Wolds is in private ownership, with few publicly owned and managed sites. Partners, communities and individual landowners, particularly farmers and land managers, have a crucial role to play in continuing to safeguard this unique landscape.

In recognition of the jubilee, the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, the Lincolnshire Chalk Stream Project and the AONB Farming in Protected Landscapes network have worked with partners to coordinate a series of 50 events from April to October to showcase, promote and engage with people who live, work and visit the Lincolnshire Wolds.
