Spotlight on Eastgate Shops

Featured in the Daily Telegraph, Eastgate in Louth is fast becoming recognised as one of Englands finest "real food" streets. No fewer than 5 butchers survive along its length attributed mainly by the quality of the meat they sell and the loyalty of local customers and an ever increasing number of tourists visiting "the capital of the Wolds".

The street is a fascinating window into days gone by with Victoriana shop fronts along its entire length and hundreds of Georgian terraces. Eastgate is bisected by the Greenwich meridian line separating the north and south hemispheres and boasts the site of the former printing works of one of Alfred Lord Tennysons first publications.  At the top of the street is the impressive landmark of St James church, its spire the tallest parish church spire in England with King Edward VI grammar school nearby (former scholars include Captain John Smith of Pocahontas fame and Tennyson). A number of fine examples of Georgian architecture exist especially Louth Mansion house and further down the Manor House.  

Visitors have been attracted to Louth in recent years by a number of articles in the national press. All Seasons Holidays, the self catering holiday of the year for the region opposite the Louth manor house was featured for its restoration work and the entire town came 4th as the best place to live in the UK in a recent Daily telegraph article.

Eastgate has a number of delightful shops for the visitor with "Dragonfly" selling gifts and some stunning and unusual mirrors and soft furnishings, an excellent clothes boutique for men and women at Forbes and a number of shoe and handbag shops specialising in designer goods.  

 

Louth Museum - 

Louths museum is on Broadbank and has been several years in the making.

 Re-opeed in March 2006 the museum is a far cry from many stuffy Victorian town museums. 

Louths museum has had  considerable time and money spent refurbishing and extending and it is now a museum to be proud of.  

 The museum is small but will still entertain the visitor for an hour or so. The panoramic was painted in 1840 by William Brown who was a house painter and reporter and took the opportunity to paint the views from the scaffolding around the spire during some restoration work. 

Click on below for a closer look at Browns work

Also featured are a working printing press, artifacts from Roman and Medieval period and many items associated with the Georgian and Victorian period.

 Of particular interest is the wonderful architecture of this quirky Edwardian building including the internal balustrade and the fine display featuring the 1920s flood disaster.

St. James Church

The parish church has the tallest spire (295 feet) of any medieval parish church in the country. It is featured in Sir Simon Jenkin's book, England's 1000 Best Churches.

Cadwell Park

Cadwell

Cadwell Park is one of British motorsport's best-kept secrets, despite the fact it has hosted car, bike and kart races since its creation.

The land on which the circuit stands was originally purchased in 1926 by Mr. Mansfield Wilkinson, who bought the land for shooting upon. However, his son Charles persuaded his father to let him run a motorcycle meeting on the land in 1934, and this was the first circuit used at Cadwell Park. The corners of Charlies, Chris and Mansfield all celebrate the founders in the Wilkinson family, who once had Cadwell park offices at 140 Eastgate, Louth -  now All Seasons Holidays.

For 1952, the circuit was extended to one and a quarter miles with the addition of Mansfield Corner. Some of the motorcycle meetings also featured Formula 3 races. However, regular car meetings didn't take place until May 1962, after Charles Wilkinson purchased some adjoining land and extended the circuit length to 2.176 mile/ 3.49 km. Cadwell Park was then purchased by Grovewood Securities, before becoming part of the Brands Hatch Leisure group.

A combination of long fast curves and some very tricky tight bends, hills with a nasty hairpin. The track can be split into two main sections, the section from Coppice through to Chris Curve (Club Circuit) is fairly simple but the section from Gooseneck through to Barn requires a lot of concentration, a lot of accidents occur at this section.

As well as the VSCC's annual visit in June and the Radical Festival in August, Cadwell's highlight of the season will be the British Superbike meeting on the August Bank Holiday weekend. This is when the circuit's true character comes out. Car or bike, Cadwell sorts the men from the boys.

From the North; Approach using the M180 southbound and follow signs to Humberside Airort. Take the A18, then the A16 to Louth and from there follow the A153 towards Horncastle.
