Lincolnshire's Aviation Heritage

Lincolnshire has the most amazing aviation history and there are far too many site of interest to list here, but our favourites are The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is stationed at RAF Coningsby (12 miles) where you can see the last flying Lancaster in Great Britain. The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre is a family run museum at East Kirkby (9 miles) and was set up over 20 years ago. It is now widely seen as a living memorial to the 55,500 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WW2. It holds one of the rarest aircraft, an Avro Lancaster Bomber, in its collection along with many wartime vehicles including a Ford WOT1 Crew Bus, the only one of its kind known in existence. "Just Jane" has taxi-ing displays both daytime and evening for the benefit of the public.

Rand Farm Park

Rand Farm Park is a genuine working farm for children of all ages to enjoy. You will find it in rural Lincolnshire on the main A158 Lincoln to Skegness road, about two miles on the Lincoln side of Wragby. There are a large variety of animals to hold, feed, touch and cuddle. Indoor heated play areas ensure the fun doesn't stop when the weather's bad.There's also a spacious tearoom and coffee bar, which can seat up to 200, so the everyone can treat themselves to a lovely cuppa and a bite to eat after a day's fun and activity. An interactive information centre will tell you lots of interesting stuff about the farm and the animals that live there.

Hall Farm Park

Another of our favourite places for a family day out Hall Farm Park  which is set in the grounds of a working farm in Lincolnshire. The Farm Park site has been purposely developed to cater for visitors of all ages and abilities. Situated in the pretty Lincolnshire village of South Kelsey between Market Rasen, Caistor and Brigg it is home to a wide selection of friendly animals, some traditional and some rare breeds along with domestic pets. All the animals can be touched and fed by visitors. At certain times of the day, some animals can even be held or handled more closely. we especially love taking the goats for a walk and playing on the slide with the huge rubber rings inside the barn - great fun for a rainy day!

Seals at Mablethorpe and Donna Nook

It was in 1974 that the first seal arrived at the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary and Animal Centre and since then hundreds have been rescued and returned to the wild. The wildlife hospital built in 1989 not only made it possible to look after more seals but also gave visitors a better insight into the rearing of seal pups. Donna Nook is a habitat for thriving grey seals and of great conservational importance, boasting one of the largest and most accessible breeding colonies for the endangered mammal in Britain. As the BBC put it: ‘an encounter with a seal at Donna Nook is almost guaranteed because this is effectively a seal maternity hospital.’ When autumn turns into winter, hundreds of grey seals start hauling themselves onto the sand banks on the Lincolnshire coast to give birth to their pups – around 900 a year.

Sandilands Surfing!

The are some great surfing opportunities at our local beach at Sandilands approximately 40 minutes from Tealby. It is easy to park, there are toilet facilities and food available at the golf Club. It is popular with local surfers, dog walkers, cyclists and families. Huts are available to hire at the local shop.

Elsham Hall

Elsham Hall is described by Clive Aslet as one of the most imaginative gardens in England! The walled garden is a magnificent 4-acre site which has been excitingly re-landscaped. There is a sensory garden, great drifts of bulbs and wild flowers, vistas, a one world garden, paddocks for the little brown sheep, a huge viewing mound, dramatic aviaries, a guinea pig village, sculpture and living willow features.

Humber Bridge

Lincolnshire Waterways

We can thank the Romans for the Fossdyke Canal and the Brayford Pool at Lincoln and in medieval times Boston and Lincoln harnessed the River Witham for transport and saw their wealth grow. The 18th century fen drainage changed the map of Lincolnshire and the East Coast Floods of 1953 formed our attitudes to flood defence.The Lincolnshire Waterways Partnership is taking this baton forward into the 21st Century, working towards creating thriving river corridors that are a pleasure to visit. Walkers, cyclists, boaters, anglers and nature lovers have ample new waterside projects waiting for them to enjoy.
