Louth

Louth, a charming Wolds market town lies just six miles from Grimblethorpe. This traditional town has a bustling centre with market days on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, alongside the open-air auction 'on the Stones' every Wednesday afternoon.

The town is watched over by the breath-taking church of St James’s with its spire soaring to a height of 295 feet, the tallest parish church in the country. This unspoilt town has many connections with historical events, such as the Lincolnshire Uprising, and with those who have made history including Alfred, Lord Tennyson, famous Poet Laureate and Captain John Smith whose life was saved by the Indian Princess Pocahontas.
