Most of the Lincolnshire Wolds was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1973 following considerable local campaigning.
This designation means the landscape is some of Britain's finest countryside. It is a living, working landscape, with woodland, grassland and abandoned chalk pits providing important habitats for rare flowers and wildlife.
The Lincolnshire Wolds lie in the north-eastern quarter of the county of Lincolnshire, mid-way between Lincoln and the coast, surrounded by the relatively flat fens, coastal marsh and the Lincoln Clay Vale. The Wolds is the highest land in eastern England between Kent and Yorkshire - there are fine views to the Pennines in the west, and the coast to the east. The AONB comprises an area of 558 km² (216 miles²), while the wider Lincolnshire Wolds Character/Natural Area incorporates the two neighbouring areas of the 'Spilsby Crescent' to the south and the remaining chalk uplands to the north.
Scamblesby is positioned in the heart of the Wolds, approximately equidistant at 8 miles from the market towns of Louth and Horncastle, whilst Market Rasen is around 18 miles. Lincoln is about 25 miles away. The village has a primary school of excellent repute and a village pub which has been refurbished in recent times incorporating a small local shop. The market towns above provide a diverse range of shopping, leisure and sporting facilities and a choice of school including highly regarded grammar schools and academies.
National Hunt Racing takes place at Market Rasen and the area is generally popular with equestrians, tourists, motor sports and vintage car fanatics drawn to nearby Cadwell Park. The coast is around 18 miles from the village at its nearest point. General Information
