Lincolnshire

Click the map for tourism ideas The Lincolnshire countryside comprises flatland that includes the fertile, drained marshland of the Fens to the south-east and, to the north, the hills of Lincoln Wolds. While fishing is important along the coast, agriculture dominates the economy inland. The county is the bulb-growing centre of England. The area was occupied by the Romans, who began work on the draining of the Fens and founded the garrison town of Lindum on a hill-top site beside the River Witham. The city of modern-day Lincoln is visible for miles around and the triple towers of its 900- year-old cathedral dominate the skyline, as do windmills in many parts of Lincolnshire.

71 St. Martins, Stamford, Lincolnshire PE9 2LB. Tel: 01780 750750
Superb example of an Old English Coaching Inn. Probably dating back to the 11th Century and on the old route between London and York and just 5 miles from Rutland Water. Traditional ales served along with exceptional food. The George features in many guides, but there is good reason, although many establishments claim to have a long history, the George seeps it from every pore. There is a room for those waiting for the stagecoaches to either York or London along with many other rooms on different levels. If you are visiting or passing through Stamford - you should pay a visit to the George.
