A Lincolnshire paradox

‘It is commonly thought that Lincolnshire is flat. The Lincolnshire man’s rebuttal takes a double form: first, the county is not flat, and second, if it is flat, that flatness is the essence of its character and particular beauty.’

M. W. Barley Lincolnshire and the Fens London, 1952
