Alford is a beguiling town that rests at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, bestowing the gift of fabulous views across the Fens and Salt Marshes. The Town was granted itís Market Charter in 1283 by Edward 1 and continues to hold itís Market every Tuesday and Friday. With many old buildings acknowledging past times like the Victorian and thatched houses, the most impressive is the Manor House built in 1611 with interesting exhibits, delightful gardens and tea rooms. Artists can choose between impressive Georgian Houses or perhaps the Oxley Windmill standing 57 feet high, with 5 sails still producing flour, or how about the 13th Century Church of St Wilfridís which would grace any page. For those who enjoy the great outdoors there is a choice of walking the stunning countryside where you can pass by Giants Hill Long Barrow that dates back many Centuries, this walk leads on to a beautiful valley and circular walks, or if you prefer pedal power then how about the Three Towns Rural Challenge, or there is always the thrill of Course Fishing at Oham Lakes. With unusual shops holding many treasures and a working pottery, Alford is one Gem thatís easily uncovered.
