The second largest county in England, Lincolnshire is largely rural and thus agriculture plays a dominant role in the local economy. With crops such as wheat and barley and, strawberries, potatoes, cauliflowers and cabbages, the county is a main food-producing region in the UK.
Partly due to its rural nature, transport links are not as well developed as in many parts of the UK, with no motorways and the majority of roads being single carriage. Humberside Airport and Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport are relatively close, and there are rail and bus services.
Tourism is also important, with seaside towns like Skegness providing jobs in the hospitality industry.
