Top Reasons to Live And Work in Louth

Louth is a stunning town situated in the East of Lincolnshire. Here are the top reasons why you should live and work here.

The Location 

Louth’s stunning location is second to none. It is situated in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The Lincolnshire Wolds is renowned for being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its calming hills and deep valleys are striking against the coastal landscape of marshes and dunes.

Being East Lincolnshire, it is very near the coast so perfect for those summer beach days or winter walks next to the sea. The Wolds is sparsely populated, so pollution is at a minimum. Therefore, expect to see the sky and stars at night in all their glory! 

Without a doubt, Louth is the perfect location to work from home!

Louth Market

Louth is a traditional town and with that comes a quaint market which trades on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Although with the pandemic, these days might vary or be cancelled so best to do your research if you wish to venture to the Louth Market. Once it is up and running, you can see what the market has to offer, from delicious food to pretty crafts; the market has it all!

The Beautiful Parks

There are some beautiful parks to visit, walk-in, have picnics in and socially distance in too! These are Hubbard’s Hills and West Gate Fields. Hubbard’s Hill was established in the early 1900s. It is beautiful in the summer where children can paddle in the river and families are seen catching crawfish with nets.

Westgate Fields has lawns surrounded by lime trees, oaks and ashes and has a beautiful view of St James’ Church poking over the tops of the trees. There are four leaf sculptures to visit, these are carved from oak and are owned by Louth Art Trail.

The Attractions (when they open!)

The attractions are limitless in Louth! There is much to see and do in this lovely town. All of which to be frequented when the lockdown is lifted once again! Louth has its own Golf Club, taking advantage of the hilly terrain and acres of grass.

Louth Museum opened in 1910 and was modernised in the early 2000s by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s money. It contains the largest collection of Victorian woodcarver Thomas Wallis paraphernalia in the country as well as other historical artefacts.

St James’ Church is a sight for sore eyes and worth a visit for its history and photogenic-nature. It was a gathering point for the Lincolnshire Rising in 1536. This was organised by Catholics to protest the Monasteries dissolution. There is a cafe and souvenir shop too.

When theatres re-open, Louth Riverhead Theatre is THE place to visit! It is owned and run by a small number of volunteers. There are touring productions, musicians, tribute bands, musicals, poetry recitals, evenings with television personalities and comedians who perform there.

Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is another great attraction of Louth. It runs for 1.5 miles between two stations, Ludborough and North Thoresby.

Playhouse Cinema is the only cinema for 15 miles and contains three screens. It was a former chapel and became a movie theatre in the 1920s. It shows the latest releases, classic films, independent ones as well as live recordings from the Royal Ballet and Royal Shakespeare Company.
