The Heart of England/Peak District
Lincolnshire is a historic county in the east of England. It borders Norfolk to the south east, Cambridgeshire to the south, Rutland to the south west, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire to the west,
England's second largest county is an outstanding area of ever-changing landscapes and exciting scenery, shaped by a rich tapestry of fascinating heritage, passionate people and intriguing traditions. From the iconic towers of Lincoln Cathedral to the beautiful stone town of Stamford, the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds to the breathtaking Skegness coastline, Lincolnshire is a must visit UK holiday destination.
During the Second World War Lincolnshire was known as 'Bomber County' because of the number of bomber bases dotted around the flatter countryside - perfect landscapes for the RAF and its allied comrades.
It's a rich heritage still very much alive today with Lincolnshire home to many wartime museums and living memorials as well as the current home to the RAF's famous Red Arrows display team and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
Bring those days to life in a thrilling way at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre where you can experience the sights, smells and sounds of a real Bomber Command airfield - and even get the chance to taxi down the runway in a Lancaster Bomber.
The nearly 1,000 years old village (first mentioned in the 10th century is best known for its windmill of the same name, the only 8-sailed example of its type still standing in the UK and all Europe. The tower windmill built as a five-sailed mill in 1830 and turned into an eight-sailed mill after serious storm damages in 1890-92 was formerly (and sometimes still today) named Pocklington's Mill after its last owner John Pocklington. In 1986 the windmill underwent restoration.
The Heckington Show has been held annually in the village over the last weekend in July since 1864.and is said to be the largest village show in England with regular attendance of 25,000 visitors. Nothing quite matches Heckington Show for the relaxed way that it combines the intimacy of a village show with the expectation of the national stage. Heckington Show is a true family day out, a quintessentially English Summer occasion for families and friends to enjoy and take part in an event that brings competition and co-operation, pride and pleasure, sunshine and smiles to a Summer's day.
