Lincolnshire – Birthplace to Sir Isaac Newton and Pork pies
Lincolnshire is a county in the east of England that is heavily involved in agriculture, producing large quantities of wheat, barley, sugar beet, oilseed rape and many of the more common vegetables like cabbages, cauliflowers, and onions.
The county is famous for producing a number of different foods, but especially Lincolnshire sausages, Haslet and Pork pies (which are very tasty when purchased from local shops).
Lincolnshire also has connections with many famous people, such as Sir Isaac Newton, King Henry IV of England, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Margaret Thatcher (Baroness Thatcher), Jennifer Saunders, Jim Broadbent and many others.
It is perhaps fair to say that Lincolnshire has retained many of the features commonly seen in other counties in England in the past, especially in the villages.
