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.
