Chalk Streams of Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire’s chalk streams are a characteristic and attractive feature that has helped shape the Lincolnshire Wolds landscape over the past 10,000 years. Much of the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds has underlaying chalk that has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Blow Wells

Blow wells have been a feature of North Lincolnshire for centuries. A blow well is a type of groundwater spring, which is seldom (if at all) found across the British Isles except for the coastal margins of Lincolnshire. The geological conditions needed to form a blow well are found between Louth and Barton-Upon Humber.
