AN author from Grantham has written a new book aimed at getting families exploring the Lincolnshire countryside.

The book, Kiddiwalks in Lincolnshire, is a footpath guide that offers 20 walks which are specifically child and family orientated.

Four of them are in the Grantham area, covering areas such as the Hills and Hollows, Grantham Canal and Bellmount Tower.

Catherine said: “As a local I’m very keen to promote the beautiful countryside in this area. I’m even more keen to get children and families outdoors, exploring and using the countryside as nature’s playground.”

Each walk is made up of a circular route and comes with a small map that is easy to read. Instructions to follow each route are also given along with background information to the area.

To make the routes more family orientated, a list of things to see and do, as well as information about the wildlife on each walk, is also given to encourage children’s involvement.

Picnic areas and nearby places to stop for refreshments are also given for the families wanting to get the most out of their walk.

Catherine said: “I hope that you will all, like my family, enjoy the freedom and adventure Lincolnshire has to offer. Remember - it’s not a walk, it’s an adventure.”
