In honour of Lincolnshire Day, we’ve put together a list of the best things about Lincolnshire life and why we think Lincolnshire really is the best county!
What better that celebrating Lincolnshire Day! It’s a day for celebrating all the things that make Lincolnshire the county that is it!
Celebrated for its sausages, Lincolnshire being home to the famous Lincolnshire sausages pretty much put the county on the map! If there’s one thing the people of Lincolnshire love, it’s their sausages.
Let’s not forget the Lincolnshire Poacher cheese. The Lincolnshire Poacher is a multi-award-winning, rich and smooth cheese crafted by generations of cheese makers at Ulceby Grange Farm in Alford. Using long-established methods on a farm that’s been in the family since 1917, you can’t get more traditional than that.
2. RED ARROWS
What could be more British than a Mr. Whippy in hand watching a midsummer display of the Red Arrows?
The Red Arrows are based in RAF Scampton, a Royal Air Force station found in the village of Scampton, Lincolnshire. As well as RAF Scampton, dotted across Lincolnshire you’ll find other RAF bases here, as well as rich aviation history that dates back to the two World Wars. From the Dambusters Raid to a Vulcan bomber, Lincolnshire’s aviation and wartime history is incredible. Be sure to take a trip back in time and head over to Lincolnshire’s Aviation Centre.
