Visit Lincolnshire for a short break there’s much to see and do.
Cross the flat, fertile Fens to the rolling chalk uplands of the Lincolnshire Wolds, with its wooded valleys and sleepy villages.
One of them, Somersby, is the birthplace of the poet, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, born on 6 August 1809 He was born into a middle-class family
His father, George Clayton Tennyson was rector of Somersby, also rector of Benniworth and Bag Enderby, and vicar of Grimsby. His father raised a large family and he was no fool by all accounts who tried his hand with fair success in architecture, painting, music, and poetry. He was comfortably well off for a country clergyman and his shrewd money management enabled the family to spend summers at Mablethorpe and Skegness
Then move on and visit Lincoln
Its cathedral is definitely worth a visit, but I warn you the hill leading to it is “quite a climb”
The triple towers of Lincoln Cathedral are visible for miles. The cathedral is a fascinating mix of Norman and Gothic styles. Look for the Lincoln imp gargoyle, turned to stone by an angel, and then explore Lincoln Castle.
