Lincolnshire is Britainís second largest
county, stretching from Yorkshire to Norfolk. It is mainly an agricultural
area. The population density is low, which means it tends to be very
peaceful and quiet away from the larger towns.
Its coastline is not especially attractive,
unless you are a fan of large static caravan sites! Much of the coastline is
protected by sea defences comprising large banking. This means no sea views
unless you climb it!
Its main conurbation is the City of Lincoln,
which boasts a fantastic cathedral. I can thoroughly recommend a visit.
Outside the main conurbations, there are lots
of pretty, tranquil villages, many with attractive pubs.
The majority of Lincolnshire is very flat,
which might tempt some walkers to write the area off. However, this would be
a mistake as it boasts the Lincolnshire Wolds, which, (depending on which
defenition of the Lincolnshire Wolds you use) stretch for some 30
miles from Caistor in the north to Spilsby in the south and are something
like 12 miles wide. These rolling chalk and sandstone hills, which reminded
me a little of the Devon countryside, comprise the highest land in eastern
England between Yorkshire and Kent. They have been designated an Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty. As they rise out of flat plains, walks in the
Wolds can provide some incredibly far reaching views.
So far I have only had the opportunity to
complete one walk there but hope to do more in the future.
