Ancient Map of Lincolnshire

Welcome to the ancient map of Lincolnshire, an artists impression of the county in 1217 the year of the signing of the Charter of the Forest. Here you can see how the landscape has changed from modern times, particularly with the draining of the fens. Many Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust nature reserves preserve or re-create relics of these ancient habitats, they are living history. The symbols for our nature reserves correspond to the Wild Houses of Lincolnshire.
