Pleasant enough Market Town Oct 21, 2013
A decent sized market town, Louth has enough to see to make it a reasonably diverting destination for a day or so.
Its central draw is undoubtedly St James' church and its remarkably Gothic spire. The church itself is nothing particularly outstanding, other than for the curiously wonky pillars in the nave. But the cramped climb up the tower gives better-than-expected views of Louth and the surrounding, largely flat countryside.
There's also a museum, the church precincts (through the archway is a row of houses where Alfred Lord Tennyson used to live) and, if you time it right, outdoor markets to check out.
