Churches, Castles, and Country Towns: A Lincolnshire Journey
Online Walking Tour
Join Royal Oak as we tour historic Lincolnshire, one of England’s largest counties, with Lincolnshire-born guide Rob Smith. We will explore the remains of Roman Lincoln, the lofty heights of its famous Cathedral and the bloody history of Lincoln Castle. We will then head to the elegant delights of Elizabethan Doddington Hall, visit the Saxon church at Stowe and the Old Hall and Georgian Church at Gainsborough.
Heading out into the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, we’ll learn why it is known as Bomber County, before visiting the pretty towns of Louth and Horncastle and the ruins of Bolingbroke Castle. We’ll hear the story of the Lincolnshire Uprising in Tudor times before we head South into the flat lands of the Fens. Here we will call in at Boston to see the prison the Pilgrim Fathers were held in. Then on to Spalding, where the church has a connection to London.
We will finish with a stop at Sir Isaac Newton’s home near Grantham, a visit to the gardens at Belvoir Castle and finally the country town of Stamford which sits on the road to London.
