Notes: Louth is a market town within the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. Known as the "capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds", it is situated where the ancient trackway Barton Street crosses the River Lud, and has a total resident population of around 17,000.

Much of the town centre is lined with brick buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries and the town's skyline is dominated by the Parish Church of St. James, the spire of which is 295 feet (90 m) tall, making it reputedly the tallest parish church in the United Kingdom and second only to Salisbury Cathedral in terms of spire height.[citation needed]

One of the town's main attractions is Hubbards Hills, which opened to the public in 1907. The park is a glacial valley through which the River Lud passes, with steep, wooded slopes on either side.

A flood occurred in the town on May 29, 1920, causing 23 deaths. Several stone plaques in the town show the high water level reached. Other, less devastating floods occurred in 2007.

Historically, the town is most noted as the origin of the Lincolnshire Rising, the forerunner of Pilgrimage of Grace, in 1536.
