As is often the case with the villages and towns of Lincolnshire, water acts as a tranquil backdrop to Brigg which offers attractive shopping in what is a small brick market town on the River Ancholme.
The award winning farmers' market is held in the Market place on the fourth Saturday of the month, attracting thousands of visitors. The market is certified by FARMA and offers mouth watering sights and sounds that are a magnet for all food lovers.
The lush Ancholme Valley has a series of walks, along riverbanks and through quiet countryside. The slow flowing river is crossed by a series of quaint bridges like Horkstow Bridge, a wood and stone suspension bridge designed by Sir John Rennie in 1844.
Wrawby Post Mill is the last working post mill in the North of England can be seen for miles around. Built around 1760 the mill is located high on the Lincolnshire Wolds on the site of the previous open trestle post mill.
Elsham Hall Gardens and Wildlife Park is a magnificent 4-acre site which has been excitingly re-landscaped. There is a sensory garden, great drifts of bulbs and wild flowers, vistas, a one world garden, paddocks for the little brown sheep, a huge viewing mound, dramatic aviaries, a guinea pig village, sculpture and living willow features. All in all a delight for children, keen gardeners.
