Rigsby Wood - famous for its BluebellsRigsby Wood - famous for its Bluebells

This is very old woodland that lies on the eastern side of the chalk hills of Lincolnshire near Alford. This wood was mentioned in charters in the twelfth century. Felling and replanting has taken place over the years.

The Lincolnshire Trust for Nature Conservation has owned the land since 1980.

The present ridge overlooked the sea. In ancient times this was the coast. Stone Age people would have looked down over the chalk cliffs to see the waves pounding against the beach below.
