If you’re wondering “What’s it like to live in Louth?”, read on. We’ve taken a deeper dive into this historic Lincolnshire market town. 

Where is Louth? 

Louth is a market town and civil parish situated in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. Located at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds where they connect with the Lincolnshire Marsh, the town developed where the ancient trackway known as Barton Street crossed the River Lud. Just beyond lies Hubbard’s Hills, which is a steep-sided chalk valley – the perfect spot for walking or enjoying a picnic. Louth is just a half an hour’s drive to the coast at Mablethorpe. Which makes it ideal for a day out at the beach.

Is there much to do in Louth?

Louth may be a small market town, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to keep you occupied. As well as having many fantastic shops, pubs and restaurants, there are some great attractions to discover. This includes the stunning St James’ Church, which boasts the tallest parish spire in the whole country. Louth Museum and the Old Malting Antiques Centre are also worth a visit. To stretch your legs, take a trip out to the Lincolnshire Wolds, which showcases some of the most stunning scenery in the East Midlands. Here you can enjoy exploring glorious rolling hills, hidden valleys and gentle streams. 

Does Louth have a good food and drink scene?

Louth is famous for its food and drink scene, with TV Chefs The Hairy Bikers referring to it as a “food mecca” due to its wealth of foodie hotspots. Make sure you visit Baci and Co – a café renowned for its beautiful ice cream, Serendipity Restaurant at the Priory and Bar Castillejar for its wonderful tapas. The town’s weekly markets are certainly worth a visit if you’re looking for Lincolnshire’s most delectable local produce. 

You’ll find everything from cheese to the famous Lincolnshire Plum Loaf. If you’re unable to visit on market day, you won’t be disappointed. Pay a visit to one of the other many food shops, including the butchers, bakers, greengrocers, fishmongers, and the fantastic cheese shop. In terms of pubs, a trip to the Wheatsheaf is not to be missed, as well as the Masons Arms with its fantastic cocktail bar. 

What about schools?

Louth has a number of great primary and secondary schools. Highly regarded primaries include St Michael’s CofE and Lacey Gardens, which are both classed as “good” by Ofsted, and Kidgate which is “outstanding”. The best secondary school is King Edward VI Grammar which is also “outstanding”. If you’re moving to the town with kids in tow, you can rest assured that they’ll benefit from a high standard of education.

Chris and his apprentice were brilliant! Came out in the miserable rain and made my roof water tight again. I had several quotes from other roofers, cowboys trying to milk my desperation for silly money. Chris was honest, fair and reasonably priced. Highly recommended, thanks!

Had a leak from my roof. Chris came out the same day althoughthe weather wasn't good. He surveyed the roof and found the problem immediately (a tile had slipped), took photo's before and after replacing the slipped tile. I asked how much I owed him - he said there was NO charge as it was a quick repair. What a lovely, kind, genuine guy! Would highly recommended him and his company.

After being let down by another firm i rang Chris in desperation. Within an hour he arrived, looked at work, discussed, priced and booked a date. Arrived on time, everything ran like clockwork even in the awful heat they had to work through. Very well organised, very tidy, would have no hesitation in recommending his work. Many thanks

Excellent service, recently had repairs carried out on my house roof, Chris was really friendly, work carried out to a great standard at a great price 🙂
We have used Raven Roofing several times for small repairs as we didn't want to go to the expense of a new roof, but recent torrential rain forced us to accept we needed a new roof. We were dreading the bill but Raven Roofing were very reasonable (not sure if I'm allowed to say how much).The scaffolding arrived and was put up promptly, Raven Roofing arriving a couple of days later to start work, the only delays were due to bad weather and Raven Roofing contacted us to let us know about any delays which we really liked, usually builders don't bother. Raven roofing were polite, friendly and courteous at all times.Out roof was completely stripped and replaced in a week, all rubbish was removed and the gardens left looking tidy.The roof itself looks fantastic...we are very very pleased and highly recommend Raven Roofing.
