Nestling south of Lincoln lies North Kesteven, the Heart of Lincolnshire: a place brimming with history, heritage and great places to visit, whatever your age.
North Kesteven is home to three operational RAF stations and has a rich aviation heritage which can be explored using the free Airfield Trail.
Overlooking Lincoln Cathedral is the iconic International Bomber Command Centre Memorial standing as a point of recognition, remembrance and reconciliation.
If you’re feeling more energetic, take advantage of the hirebike scheme and explore Witham Valley Country Park, linking a number of green spaces across the City of Lincoln and North Kesteven.
It provides great places to relax and unwind in beautiful, unspoilt countryside. On the way you'll find Whisby Nature Park with miles of way-marked walks as well as a visitor centre, café and outdoor adventure play area.
The Heart of Lincolnshire is criss-crossed with over 135 miles of way-marked Stepping Out Walks, showcasing the hidden gems from the Knights Templar to poignant former airfields. The walks are complimented by stunning artworks scattered across the landscape enhancing your walk.
A 30 minute drive brings you to the traditional market town of Sleaford. Its striking architecture is testament to the prosperity brought to the town by the Sleaford Navigation Company.
Sleaford boasts a wealth of history and heritage including Cogglesford Watermill, a working watermill, and beautiful Church of St Denys whose stone broach spire is one of the earliest of its kind in England.
