The visual guide to
Louth in Lincolnshire

  Louth Eye     



The Railway Walk

Louth, a Lincolnshire town, is famous for St James church, with its towering spire. It's also the birthplace of the astronaut Michael Foale. Highlights include the town's Georgian architecture and its unique, independent shops. It also features the Meridian Leisure Centre and the Riverhead Theatre, home to the Louth Playgoers.

The place has a somewhat twee image, but there's more to Louth than quaint markets and old-fashioned architecture. A fair amount of construction work and regeneration is going on.

In places Louth is an extremely modern town. However, there are many people who work hard to preserve the town's unique character and its amenities, such as Hubbard's Hills.

St James

Landmarks in Louth

For years the skyline in Louth has been dominated by the spire of St. James and the enormous ABM building, also known as the Malt Kiln. Work started on demolishing the Malt Kiln in January of 2004 in order to make way for some flats, although this work ceased soon after. St James, however, has stood for almost half a millennium and is unlikely to be coming down any time soon.
