Our Work

The Lincolnshire Wolds is a living, working landscape, with woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits providing important habitats for rare flowers and wildlife.

Whatever you are interested in; this website will help you discover this forgotten corner of the country and provide you with details on the work of Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and the qualities of our special landscape. We also include useful publications produced by the service and some further information on local grant schemes.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service works in partnership with its Joint Advisory Committee and other groups and individuals to:

  • Protect and enhance the landscape and its distinctive features
  • Encourage community interest and involvement
  • Raise awareness of the Wolds
  • Promote sustainable development and appropriate enjoyment
