Just how high can you go in Lincolnshire and Where is it?

They say Lincolnshire's flat, anyone who has driven around the Lincolnshire Wolds, as I do nearly everyday. I can tell you otherwise, there's some breathtaking scenery and lung busting hill climbs.

Normanby Hill (sometimes also Wolds Top) is the name sometimes given to the highest point of the Lincolnshire wolds. It lies some distance to the north of the village of Normanby le Wold in Lincolnshire. The viking way passes close by, on a minor road and there is a radio mast near the summit. The summit is marked with an Ordnance Survey triangulation station, which was erected in 1936 and is now used as part of the Ordnance Survey National GPS System.

Wolds Top is within the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!!

Officially the high spot is 551 feet above sea level and the exact point is marked by an Ordnance Survey trig pillar near Normanby le Wold - grid reference TF 12209 95452.

Do you know the difference between dirt and soil?

Agriculture is more than dirt, ploughs and tractors. Agriculture is the largest industry in the world and employs the majority of the workers in the United Kingdom. Where I'm from the soil is what keeps families alive. Most people just think that fields are just "dirt", which isn't even the right term. Do you know the difference between dirt and soil? Soil is what farmers grow their crops in, dirt is what you sweep up off your kitchen floor. There are uses for soil in growing the crops that produce your food,. Soil provides the nutrients, hold the water that keep the crops alive, provide aeration for the crops, and provides that minerals that the crops need to grow. The soil in the fields is what makes the crops prosperous or not, so the next time you look at a field think about the potential that it might hold for the next year.
