East Lincolnshire – The Lincolnshire Wolds– Geocaching, Food & Snipe Dales

Geocaching

Geocache fun

Geocaching is a modern twist on treasure hunts: an outdoor game which uses global positioning by satellite (GPS) technology. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS co-ordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

Geocaches are hidden all over the world and can be anything from a small container hidden in a hedgerow to something a bit more mysterious.

Geocaches are now hidden in various locations throughout the Lincolnshire Wolds. Taking part in a geocache trail is great fun for the whole family and a perfect way to get out, explore and learn more about our fascinating countryside.

Snipe Dales Country Park and Nature Reserve

Sunset

Nature lovers will enjoy a visit to Snipe Dales Country Park and Nature Reserve on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, home to woodland and wetland areas and a variety of birds, water plants and wildlife.

There are two walking routes to be enjoyed from the nature reserve and Snipe Dales also marks the start of two cycle trails for keen cyclists.

Food

EL - Market Towns

Lincolnshire is a rich agricultural county, home to many talented producers who grow and make fantastic foods such as Lincolnshire plum loaf, stuffed chine, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese and Lincolnshire sausages.

At the regular farmers markets in Horncastle and Louth you can peruse, taste and buy delicious food made and produced in the town or only a few miles away.

Real ale enthusiasts will enjoy a trip to the home of Fugelestou Ales at the Fulstow Brewery near Louth or one of the area’s most popular attractions, the award-winning Batemans Brewery in Wainfleet, and find out how traditional Lincolnshire beer is produced.
