If Kent is the 'Garden of England' then the large county of Lincolnshire is nowadays associated with food production as the 'Market Garden of England', and visible remains of the methods that were once used to process and transport perishable goods to the county's industrial towns and ports are still in evidence if you know where to look. Maltings were built in several towns to service the barley market and survive in number - alongside warehouses, wharves and other evidence of former industries.Much of the Lincolnshire 'flat' fenland carries historic drainage ditches and water courses and with them comes a surprising amount of water pumping stations, windmills and watermills, built to harness the incoming tides. Industrial towns such as Grimsby, Immingham and Scunthorpe grew along the banks of the River Humber and Lincoln, Gainsborough and Boston saw successful engineering manufacturing facilities that provided steam power through the industrial revolution, both to Britain and around the world.
