This remarkable new book by Jon Fox investigates the natural and historical lines in the Lincolnshire countryside, focusing on features used or constructed as routes, banks or boundaries. It covers both natural features such as the Lincoln Edge, former coastlines and extinct Ice Age valleys, as well as man-made lines of every period of history, ranging from prehistoric trackways, Roman roads and Medieval banks, through to the drains, canals, railways and military defences of more recent centuries.
As a companion volume to Jon's The Lincolnshire Landscape, the book combines informative and accessible text with inspiring colour photographs taken specially by the author. The photographs illustrate the features and historical changes decribed in the text while also celebrating their contribution to the character, interest and beauty of Lincolnshire's varied landscape. High quality maps have also been included to show the distribution of lines in the county.
The book considers different types of line on a chapter basis:
