Louth Heritage Trail
Louth originated in Saxon times, set in a fold of the Lincolnshire Wolds where the ancient trackway called Barton Street crossed the River Lud as it flows from the chalk Wolds onto the lower Middle Marsh, an expanse of boulder clay left by ice-sheets during the later periods of glaciation. The town’s name derives from Hlud or Loud, referring to the fast-flowing river.
This trail will guide you around the centre of Louth on a heritage trail. Remember always to look above ground floor level to admire the architecture. Louth has an extensive Conservation Area and over 250 listed buildings, too many to describe in this leafle
