Historic Market Towns

Lincolnshire is such a big county and there is much to discover. So just a few favourites to whet your appetite. Lincoln’s Castle and Cathedral date from 1068 and 1072; they are William the Conqueror’s very visible way of saying ‘I’m in charge now’. The Cathedral can be seen from miles away as you approach and the Castle has recently undergone a £22m restoration. Stamford in the south of the county is just an historic gem, with the great Burghley House, literally on the edge of town. Other favourites are St Wulfram’s at Grantham, Heckington Mill, Elizabethan Doddington Hall and the eclectic Spalding Gentleman’s Society.
