Louth

There are about 16, 419 people in the area, according to the 2011 census. The town may not be big but it has orderly streets and neat gardens all throughout adding to the charm of the place.

As with most British towns, Louth has a historical connection dating back to the Paleolithic era. This has been proved by the three axes found just outside of Louth, which dates back to around 424,000 to 191,000 years ago. The place also experienced the tension of the English civil war as it also became a stage for the bloody battle.

Louth is also the stage for the Lincolnshire Uprising prompted by the moving speech delivered by Rev. Thomas Kendall at St. James Church. The church is also considered as the tallest Anglican Parish Church throughout the United Kingdom.

The whole town is characterized by nostalgic buildings from the 17th and 18th century, which are mostly made up of bricks. A prominent example of this is the St. James Church. A park with an interesting story also makes the place more like Verona with its Juliet. This park is known as the Hubbard’s Hill, which was dedicated to another sad love story.

Moreover, the city center is composed of about 70% independent retailers with their unique products.. There are also groceries, producing large scales of fresh local produce may it be meat, fish, vegetables, or fruits. These groceries are recognized by visitors from other places. Another award-winning place is the famous Cheese Shop.
