Macildowie has been ‘Building Great Futures’ in Lincolnshire since 1993. Lincolnshire is a county in the East Midlands with a long coastline on the North Sea and a population of 756,920. The county borders Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The county of Lincolnshire has several sub-regions, including the rolling chalk hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the Lincolnshire Fens, the Carrs, the industrial Humber Estuary and the North Sea coast.
Lincolnshire is a rural area with a generally slower pace than in much of the United Kingdom. This is due to the large distances between the towns, which means many villages have remained very self-contained and many include shops, pubs, local halls and local chapels and churches, that offer a variety of social activities for residents.
Lincolnshire has long been a primarily agricultural area in the UK, and it continues to grow copious amounts of wheat, barley, sugar beet, and oilseed rape. In fact, Lincolnshire farmers often break world records for their crop yields and South Lincolnshire is also home to one of the UK's leading agricultural experiment stations.
It may surprise you to learn that the most famous apple in history is not actually from an American technology company, but is in fact from Lincolnshire. That's because Lincolnshire is also famous for being the birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton, who was born in Woolsthorpe and educated at The King’s School in Grantham.
