Lincolnshire is a very large and diverse county in the East of England, situated between the Humber and the Wash. The county borders Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, the East Riding of Yorkshire, and Northamptonshire. Many find the pace of life is generally slower than much of the country, due to a relatively sparse population and traditional values. Bourne marks the gateway to southern most Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire at its most spectacular - where the eastern slopes of the Kesteven Uplands meets the western edge of the Lincolnshire Fens.
