Lincolnshire is a low-lying county in Eastern England lying between the Wash and the Humber Estuary. Lincolnshire borders with Northamptonshire, Yorkshire, Norfolk, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. It is the second biggest county in England, after Yorkshire.
Part of the county lies below sea level and is at severe risk from flooding if sea defences are breached.
Lincolnshire folk are popularly known as 'Yellowbellies'.
