Maps installed in scenic areas

SMART new information panels and leaflets welcoming visitors to explore and enjoy Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park and its five miles of beautiful sandy beaches are now available.

The panels and leaflet explain the special features of the area – including its wildlife, walking routes, places to visit and where to eat on a specially-created map.

The panels have been installed at five coastal sites: Wolla Bank, Huttoft Car Terrace, Anderby Creek, Marsh Yard and Chapel Six Marshes.

Walks in the area include sections of beach, footpaths across working farmland and even part of a disused railway.

The all-access trail at Chapel Six Marshes enables everyone to get close to wildlife.

On a very low tide, Wolla Bank is one of the best places to see the remains of an ancient forest that was submerged as the sea level rose, several thousand years ago.

The panel at Wolla Bank was funded through the Rural Development Programme for England.

At Anderby Creek, the Round and Round House gives all-round views over the beach, dunes and pools.

Anderby Creek is also home to the Cloud Bar – the world’s first ‘official cloud spotting area’!

Coun Eddy Poll for Lincolnshire County Council, said, “I’m sure that these attractive new panels and leaflet will help visitors to enjoy exploring the Coastal Country Park.

“As well as discovering our peaceful beaches, nature reserves and wildlife, we hope local businesses will receive a boost as visitors stay in the area and buy local produce.”

Copies of the leaflet are available from Lincolnshire County Council on 01522 782070, or by email: lccp@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

A Coastal Country Park newsletter and events programme are also available to download from www.lincolnshirecoastalcountrypark.com.
