The Wolds and Lincolnshire.

There are a number of attractions in and around Binbrook and Binbrook vale. Pleasant walking can be found in the picturesque neighbouring hamlets of Kirmond-Le-Mere, Stainton-Le-Vale, and Wold Newton. While the Viking Way, and the forests of Market Rasen are only six or seven miles away. Or, if you are in a quieter mood, why not take refreshments in the Plough Inn just off Binbrook Square.

Lincolnshire and the Wolds as a whole, are among the most special and neglected treasures available to the tourist in Britain. At the heart of the county is the area designated as the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, (the lower green area on the map). Here you will find many picturesque valleys and rolling hills, the tranquil birthplace of the poet Alfred Tennyson and much more beside. While round the edges of the A.O.N.B. are several charming market towns, such as, Market Rasen, Horncastle, Alford and Louth with its tall church spire. To the east of the Wolds, Lincolnshire is blessed with a fine coast and costal plain on which sit the towns of Grimsby with excellent shopping and heritage centres, and the resorts of Cleethopes, Mablethorpe and Skegness. While to the West of the Wolds lies Lincolnshires tranquil and gently rolling Central Vale. And of course the old city of Lincoln itself with its tall hilltop cathedral visible from half the county.

A short poem by Tennyson, (born in the wolds not far from Tetford,[see photo] ), about the wolds, which I thought you might like. If you take the Blue Stone Ridge road to Alford, you too may see views of the coastal plain open before you, and sometimes in the morning especially, a bright gleaming sea.

 

Calm and deep peace on this high wold,

And on these dews that drench the furze,

And all the silvery gossamers

That twinkle into green and gold:

Calm and still on yon great plain

That sweeps with all its autumn bowers,

And crowded farms and lessening towers,

To mingle with the bounding main.

Tetford a typical village in the heart of the Wolds.
