Several counties border Lincolnshire in east central England, but its border with Northamptonshire is just 20 yards long and is the shortest count boundary in the country. It is the second largest county in England and can be broken down into differing areas. There are the chalk hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the Lincolnshire Fens, the limestone hills of South Kesteven and industrial areas such as the Humber Estuary, Grimsby and Scunthorpe.
Lincolnshire as it is today was only formed in 1996 when several other smaller areas were made part of it.
It is primarily an agricultural county growing large amounts of wheat, barley sugar beet, oilseed rape, potatoes, cauliflowers and onions. In the southern part of the county, the Sutton Bridge Crop Storage centre, belonging to the Potato Council, engages in research for the British potato industry. In the early 1900’s mechanisation diminished the numbers of jobs in the agricultural industry, but engineering companies largely replaced these.
It is one of the few counties that still use the 11 plus exam to see who will go to grammar school, and as a consequence there are many towns that have both a grammar school and a secondary modern school. Its county town, Lincoln, is non-selective though and almost all of the children go to a comprehensive school.
The road infrastructure of Lincolnshire is not brilliant, it is one of the very few counties in the UK that does not have motorways. Until several years ago it only has 22 miles of dual carriageway Trains do not fare much better. The county has quite a low population for its land mass, so trains are infrequent, and not all of them stop at all stations.
However, the population is growing year by year, with many thousand of new residents moving into the new housing developments. The plan is to have 14,000 new homes by 2026 and create 12,000 new jobs by then too. It is estimated that every summer the population grows by about 100,000 because of people that live in coastal caravan sites in the warmer weather.
There are three main areas that are well known holiday resorts, one being Skegness and the surrounding town, another being Mablethorpe and the villages around it and the third being Cleethorpes. These all have plenty of attractions for the holidaymakers and residents alike.

Work accident in Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire has a population of 743,000 of which roughly 60 percent are of working age. Roughly 22 percent of them are students and 13 percent retired, both figures that fall in line with the national averages. As the figures from the Office For National Statistics do not include the farming industry, they are a bit distorted for Lincolnshire, which relies heavily on agriculture.

- Fall into a grain silo
- Be run over by a delivery or collection vehicle
- Be attacked by livestock
- Come into contact with dangerous chemicals
- Be in an accident with a piece of plant, such as a combined harvester
- Fall from a hayloft
These are just a few examples of farm accidents, there are many more. It is up to the farmer to make sure his employees are safe and if any of them are injured in a work accident in Lincolnshire, they may be able to claim compensation.
