Walking Close to Lincoln

Walking Close to Lincoln

by Clive Brown
This guide is one of an extensive series of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are simple and detailed and include clear pencil drawn sketch maps.

The Lincoln Cliff or Edge is a limestone escarpment running roughly north-south through Lincolnshire from Grantham to the Humber. The city of Lincoln has grown from an initial Iron age township on the site of which the Romans built a fort. Lincoln Castle, now a museum, was built by William I who realised the strategic position of the old roman fort. The current cathedral was completed in 1311 with its splendid 271 feet high central tower still a conspicuous landmark.
