Welcome to the Lincolnshire Wolds
This is a wonderful area of countryside with some of the most beautiful, unspoilt scenery in the East Midlands. There are rolling hills and hidden valleys, gentle streams and nestling villages.
The Lincolnshire Wolds is the highest land in eastern England between Kent and Yorkshire – there are fine views to the Pennines in the west, and the coast to the east.
The Lincolnshire Wolds is a living, working landscape, with woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits providing important habitats for rare flowers and wildlife. Most was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1973 following considerable local campaigning. This designation means the landscape is some of Britain's finest countryside.
Whatever you are interested in; this website will help you discover this forgotten corner of the country and provide you with details on the work of Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service and the qualities of our special landscape. We also include useful publications produced by the service and some further information on local grant schemes.
The Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service works in partnership with its Joint Advisory Committee and other groups and individuals to:
- Protect and enhance the landscape and its distinctive features
- Encourage community interest and involvement
- Raise awareness of the Wolds
- Promote sustainable development and appropriate enjoyment
