Lincoln 100 Voices Trails

100 Voices includes eight walking and cycling trails around the city and surrounding countryside to commemorate 100 years of the RAF and the close association that Lincoln and Lincolnshire has with aviation.

100 Voices tells the story of the RAF through the people who have experienced it, both men and women in military and civilian roles. Each of the 100 Voices is presented on a “Wing” which are placed in 100 different locations around Lincoln and Lincolnshire that have an association with the RAF.

The 100 Voices are spread over 8 different trails, each with their own iconic RAF aircraft wing shape. There are 4 family friendly walking trails and 4 cycling trails, ranging from easy off-road routes to more challenging long distance routes. You can discover individual accounts of Lincoln’s association with the RAF as you come across the wings, or follow one of the many trails to find out more.

Flight Central is organised by Lincoln BIG and Back Garden Drama Company. Sponsored by Visit Lincoln, Cultural Destinations and RAF Lincolnshire.
