Tour LincolnshireLincolnshire (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) Lincolnshire is incredibly rich in medieval churches from Saxon times onwards, many of them still little known. Lincoln Cathedral is justly famous, and second only to Durham in the grandeur of its setting. The prosperous years from the Middle Ages though to the eighteenth century have left a splendid legacy in the great town churches of Boston and Louth, in the innumerable village churches of the south of the county, the delightful manor houses, such as Tennyson's Somersby, and the Georgian town houses and coaching inns of Boston and Grantham, of Lincoln and Louth, and above all of Stamford. Monuments to industry include the vast maltings at Sleaford, the soaring dock tower of Grimsby, and an abundance of windmills.

Lincolnshire WomenRural Women and Work: Lincolnshire C.1800-1875 This analysis of the employment of Lincolnshire rural women and their representation draws on a number of nineteenth century official reports and other contemporary documents and crosses the boundaries of the history of work, of agricultural history, of women's history and of local and geographical history.

History of BostonDown Memory Lane: A Piecemeal History of Boston and the Surrounding Villages A collection of articles by Paul Mould printed over eight years in the Lincolnshire Standard and the Boston Target.

Royal Air Force in LincolnshireBomber County: A History of the Royal Air Force in Lincolnshire The county of Lincolnshire, will forever be known as 'Bomber County' because of the many RAF Bomber Command bases dotted about its flat landscape. It is undoubtedly one of England's premier counties when it comes to military aviation. This rich history dates back to the days of the Royal Naval Air Service and Royal Flying Corps when rudimentary airfields were constructed during the First World War, through the RAF's night bombing offensive of the Second World War and on to the nuclear V-Force of the Cold War era. The 'bomber' tag relates only part of the county's aviation history. During the RAF's long association with Lincolnshire, there has also been a strong training element, which continues to this day; a front-line contribution to air defence of the UK.
