To coincide with the pop-up market event on Saturday May 22, the first walk will be looking at Market Rasen churches and chapels.

The walk starts at 2pm from the market place and will last between 60 and 90 minutes.

The second walk will be on Sunday, May 30, again starting at 2pm from the market place, and will be a general town heritage walk.

Both these walks are free, sponsored by Rasen Community Partnership Group, but places must be booked.
