the surrounding countryside is the crafted gold that surrounds that diamond.

Adjacent to the coast, the terrain is level, and is excellent for the novice cyclist. For
the hardened rider, the Lincolnshire Wolds offer a refreshing challenge, with spectacular
panoramic views of unspoiled countryside coupled with numerous hamlets and villages.



On foot, visitors will discover miles of glorious, off road tracks and bridal paths that meander through open countryside, over rolling hills, and alongside tiny flowing streams. The terrain varies
from level to hilly and from woodland to pasture. To cyclists, ramblers and to all tourists, the local Inns and friendly ivy clad country pubs provide a welcome break and offer excellent service for food and drink.

It is well worth packing a pair of walking boots and your cycle if you are visiting this area.


Lincolnshire is renowned for windmills and watermills, potteries, nature reserves, craft centres and much more. There are many quaint inland towns, such as Spilsby, Horncastle, Wainfleet, Alford and Louth, all boasting of traditional bustling weekly markets. Information and suggested routes for walking / cycling is available from local T.I.C offices.
