Brayford Pool

It is believed that Brayford (Broad Ford) Pool is where Lincolnís name and earliest habitation is derived; the Iron Age people called the place Llyn (pool of water) Don (settlement on a hill). The Romans Latinised the name to Lindensium shortened to Lindum. Eventually about 80AD it became a colony town where Roman Legionaries were allowed to retire to and was renamed Lindum Colonia. Over the centuries the name developed into Lincoln.

River Witham

The River Witham is a 82 mile long river, almost entirely in Lincolnshire. It rises south of Grantham close to South Witham, passes Lincoln and Boston, finally flowing into The Haven, a tidal arm of The Wash. The river is navigable from Lincoln to Boston.
