  The gentle Lincolnshire wolds
by sourbugger

An AONB is a 'an area of outstanding natural beauty'. The Lincolnshire wolds certainly fit this description. The gently sloping, or rolling hills are farmed intensively, but this agricultural landscape has not been destroyed by today's modern farming methods.

There are plenty of little lanes,villages and pubs to explore at your leisure in the area that extends for a few miles west of , roughly, the A16 road once north of Spilsby (see a Lincolnshire map). Horncastle is thus towards the bottom of this area - but an excellent base to choose/

note : there are several such AONB areas in England, they are not 'wild' country like the National parks but always pretty. Most are much more heavily touristed than the Lincs wolds, like the tourist infested Coswolds.
