    Arrow About Lincolnshire



    Lincolnshire

    Lincolnshire is a County situated in the East of England and is one of breathtaking landscape, pretty towns and villages with cobbled streets and stone built houses. Notable places of interest include The City of Lincoln and its amazing 900 year old Cathedral and Lincoln Castle which dates back to 1068. Other places of interest include The town of Grantham home to Isaac Newton and also the birthplace of Britain's only female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the holiday towns of Skegness and Mablethorpe and the small town of Boston, once a major seaport which boasts many historic buildings such as the Boston Stump, the 272 foot tower of the 14th century St Botolph's church, used as a navigation aid.

    The ceremonial county of Lincolnshire is composed of the non-metropolitan county of Lincolnshire and the area covered by the unitary authorities of North Lincolnshire and North-East Lincolnshire. The county is the second largest of the English counties and one that is predominantly agricultural in land use.

    The county can be broken down into a number of geographical sub-regions including: the Lincolnshire Fens (south Lincolnshire), the Carrs (similar to the Fens but in north Lincolnshire), the Lincolnshire Wolds, and the industrial Humber Estuary and North Sea coast around Grimsby and S****horpe.

    About Linconshire....

    The majority of tourism in Lincolnshire relies on the coastal resorts and towns which lie to the east of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Skegness is a popular UK seaside destination and attracts many visitors. Along with the neighbouring resorts of Ingoldmells, Chapel St Leonards and Mablethorpe, it offers many amusements, leisure activities and beaches. Caravan sites on the Lincolnshire coast are very popular. The market towns of the Lincolnshire Wolds are also attractive, with several having historic links. The wolds are quite popular for cycling and walking, with regular events such as the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival.

    Lincoln has the attraction of a historic quarter based on Steep Hill with Lincoln Castle and the 900 year old Lincoln Cathedral, as well as a trendier area around the University and at the Brayford Waterfront.





















    Cheers.

    About Lincolnshire...

    Lincolnshire is a rural area where the pace of life is generally much slower than in much of the United Kingdom. Sunday is still largely a day of rest, with only shops in Lincoln, larger market towns, and resorts and industrial towns of the North Sea coast generally remaining open. Some towns and villages in the county still observe half-day closing on Thursdays. Due to the large distances between the towns, many villages have remained very self-contained: most still have shops, pubs, local halls and local chapels and churches, offering a variety of social activities for residents. Fishing (in the extensive river and drainage system in the fens) and shooting are popular activities.





















    Cheers

    About Lincolnshire...

    Lincolnshire's unofficial county anthem is the Lincolnshire Poacher.

    A Lincolnshire tradition is that front doors are used for only three things: a new baby, a bride, and a coffin. This tradition is often referred to by the witches in Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels

    Nature is an attraction for many tourists: the south-east of the county is mainly fenland that attracts many species of birds, as do the nature reserves at Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby and Theddlethorpe.The reserve at Donna Nook also has a native seal colony popular with nature lovers.
