The Wolds is an area of outstanding natural beauty with rolling chalk hills in the centre of Lincolnshire stretching for 40 miles and rising to over 500 feet. It was the inspiration for Alfred Lord Tennyson who was born in the village of Somersby in a cottage Lincolnshire and studied at the grammer school in nearby Louth.
Lying at the south-west foot of the Wolds at the edge of the Fens, Horncastle is a bustling and attractive market town, renowned for its antique shops, with a fine heritage and unspoilt by modern developments. There are some notable historic buildings, including the 12th-century Church of St.Mary and it is a good base from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
