Lincolnshire Poacher Country -

Welcome to the Lincolnshire Wolds which is affectionally known as Poacher Country.  The capital of Poacher country is Louth which is to the East with Caistor, Market Rasen and Horncastle along the west of the Wolds.

Henry VIII regarded Lincolnshire as one of the most unruly counties in his realm, this was down to one particular activity and that was poaching. Lincolnshire has been and always will be a haven of wildlife and is particularly rich in pheasants - ideal poaching country even today! Tourists can of course enjoy an impressive choice of wildlife and bird watching sanctuaries throughout the Wolds and also at Gibraltar point near Skegness.

Terrain along East is predominately flat until the Lincolnshire Wolds which rise to around 500ft. The Wolds stretches from Barton to Spilsby with Louth,  in between. The area is bisected by the Viking Way walking route and Hull to Harwich cycle route.
