holiday and travel guide to the UK

Louth, a busy market town, with the traditional cattle now outstripped by new industry.

Fine houses in Westgate and Upgate, and a Gothic parish church, with a 300 foot tower. The Town Hall, built 1854, has been refurbished.

Famous as Lord Tennyson attended Louth Grammar School and published his first book here. A local vicar, Thomas Kendall, was hanged for his part in a rebellion against Henry VIII.

Today the town has its own "Food Trail", get a brochure from the Tourist Information Centre and follow the trail to sample local food.

There is a cinema, housed in a 1930's building, on Cannon Street.
