A celebration of Lincolnshire's rich architecture and heritage, of beautiful tranquillity and spirituality, and a welcoming oasis of peace that all West Lindsey's churches offer - open on weekends only.

Step into history for free this May and indulge in Lincolnshire’s first ‘Sconeathon’, as around 100 churches and chapels open their doors amidst the stunning Lincolnshire Wolds and West Lindsey landscapes.

The West Lindsey Churches Festival lets you explore a wide range of heritage sites covering many periods and styles, including Grade I listed buildings and fascinating historic objects of national importance.

To celebrate the event's 23rd year, church volunteers are putting on Lincolnshire’s first ‘Sconeathon’, where scones of every variety are being freshly baked for visitors to sample. The challenge is to taste as many types of scones as you can over the four days, sharing photos in social media using #LincsSconeathon.

The festival also offers visitors delicious homemade lunches and an Organ Trails of live music recitals.  The festival takes place over two weekends and is made possible by over 700 volunteers.
