The Knights Templar do Lincolnshire
On our recent visit back to the UK we visited Lincolnshire and I couldn't help but notice the similarities between this agricultural region of the UK and the Languedoc Roussillon region here in France.
I guess the fact that we stumbled across one of the legacy site of the Knights Templar and experienced the wonderful colour of the skies over Lincolnshire provided the fuel for my comparisons.
Not that I am advocating anyone should substitute a holiday in the South of France for one in rural Lincolnshire, heaven forbid. They didn't have Carcassonne Castle or Rennes le Chateau in their arsenal of tourist attractions, not to mention the Pyrenees or the Mediterranean coastline and climate.
But if you are in the UK and fancy an interesting day out, then Lincoln city is a very nice place to visit and there are a few surprises in the countryside as well.
You can find out a little more about my day out by visiting this hub I have written about Temple Bruer and the history of the Knights Templar in a quiet corner of Lincolnshire. It's amazing what you can stumble across when out looking for somewhere to walk the dog and the scenery there is not too shabby either.
