The South Humber Collection
North Lincolnshire is an area of rural tranquillity and remarkable natural beauty where the rolling chalk of the Lincolnshire wilds meets the fertile lands of the Ancholme Valley. This is the perfect place to unwind and discover hidden gems and the great outdoors.
New for 2008 is the South Humber Collection, North Lincolnshire, a showcase for the area's leading wildlife and heritage attractions. Stretching from Thornton Abbey in the east of the region to Alkborough in the west, the South Humber Collection is centred on the historic town of Barton upon Humber.
Developed out of a partnership between North Lincolnshire Council, English Heritage, The Environment Agency, Natural England, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and Queen Street School Preservation Trust, with additional funding from the Yorkshire Forward and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the collection showcases some of the area's finest attractions.
Whether you want to explore one of England's finest medieval gatehouses, learn how to reduce you carbon footprint, discover rare birds on one of Europe's finest migratory routes or buy quality art, this is the destination for you. Whether you are a history, art or wildlife enthusiast or are simply looking for a family day out with a difference, make the South Humber Collection your first choice.
