Lincolnshire is a county located in the East of England with Cambridgeshire to the south, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire to the west and the East Riding of Yorkshire to the North. It can be split into 6 different regions: heart, city of Lincoln, coast, vales, fens, wolds, and the countryside, so it makes for a wonderful place to retire to due to its diversity. Some of the more popular towns to retire to include: Grantham, Lincoln, Stamford and Cleethorpes.
The county is famous for a few things, and while it is best known for its Lincolnshire sausage, its traditional plum bread is still a well-kept secret! Lincolnshire was also home to a couple of famous historical characters. Sir Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthorpe in 1642 and Dick Turpin lived in Long Sutton for nine months.
