Moving to Louth
A bit of info about Louth...
Louth is a vibrant market town with fine Georgian and Victorian buildings and wonderful open-air markets give the town a unique market-town atmosphere.
The magnificent St James's Church, with its spire reaching 295 feet, can be seen from miles around and this year (2015) the spire celebrates its 500 anniversary . The ill-fated Lincolnshire Rising started here in 1536 and ended with the execution of the then vicar Thomas Kendall. St James Church, Louth.
On the outskirts of the town lies Hubbard's Hills, a chalk, steep-sided valley. The riverine park is a family favourite throughout the year and popular for dog walkers.
Louth is unique in that it bridges two hemispheres as the Greenwich Meridian Line of zero degrees longitude passes right through.
Near to the Louth Canal is the Riverhead Theatre, a brand new, state-of-the-art venue staging a wide range of productions and music throughout the year, from opera and classical to rock, dance and drama.
Just a few miles from Louth, set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, lies Cadwell Park, easily one of the most picturesque circuits and perhaps one of British motorsport's best-kept secrets. The 0.7 mile circuit was originally built for motorbike races in 1934, but today the two mile track has several features that are unique, particularly 'The Mountain' a short sharp incline that will see the more powerful machinery airborne!
For those who like sport, the town has popular leisure centre, the Meridian, with gym, swimming pool and many other sports and classes held throughout the week.
