 Lincolnshire Walks

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.
