The Lincolnshire Wolds is a range of rural hills, considered to be the highest area of land in Eastern England. It is considered as an area of outstanding natural beauty since 1973.
The Wolds provide a view across South Holland and the Lindseys, both East and West. In the area, aside from pure natural beauty, an abundance of medieval lost villages can be found, making it an excellent tourist destination.
The Lincolnshire Wolds is divided into four areas: the main area of chalk, the World War Scarp, an area of ridges and valleys, and south-east day grounds.
Moreover, the Wolds is famous for its Red Hill Nature Reserve, with its unusual red-colored soil, and the Wold’s top, which is the highest point in the whole Lincolnshire, measuring up to 168 meters.
The Lincolnshire Wolds is also famous for being the location of the Cadwell Park, a racing circuit, and a Youth Hostel owned by the YHA. It is also known for such stories like “The Headless Horseman”.
