The Route

Waddington Heritage Trail

The Waddington Heritage Trail was launched in July 2018 at a special celebratory event and walk. The trail features six sculptures entitled Emblems by artist duo Grennan & Sperandio which are inspired by the history and heritage of the village. Read more about the artworks and the launch event here.

The trail begins at Redwood Community Centre in the lower village and takes you to ‘uphill’ Waddington along Station road, before returning back downhill, via a scenic footpath, taking in part of the main Ridges & Furrows trail. A shorter loop of the upper village trail is also easily completed with parking at The Village Hall.

The guide was produced by historian Dave Reeves working with local groups, including the Waddington History Group. It describes a narrative along a particular route around the village, that takes people to places of interest and where thing ‘used to be’, as well as the Emblem artworks. Hard copies of the guide can be picked up from Waddington Parish Council office during opening times, from various locations in the village, and from The National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford. A digital version of the guide can be downloaded below:

We have also developed a trail guide forĀ Welbourn, and are currently working on a guide for North Hykeham, which will be ready later this year.

All these walks can be enjoyed by residents, visitors to the villages and walkers along the longer Ridges & Furrows trail.
