Lincolnshire [ ˈlɪŋkənʃɪə ] is a county in the East Midlands in England . It borders Norfolk , Cambridgeshire , Rutland , Leicestershire , Nottinghamshire , South Yorkshire , East Riding of Yorkshire and Northamptonshire for a length of 19 meters . The administrative seat is Lincoln .
The largely agricultural county stretches from the southern border with Norfolk to the Humber in the north, on the border with Yorkshire. The county stretches from flat marshland to the hilly heathland of the Lincolnshire Wolds to the lowlands near the fishing port of Grimsby .
Lincolnshire was created by uniting the territories of the former Kingdom of Lindsey with the Borough of Stamford , which was part of Danelag . For some time the entire county of Lindsey was named, as such it is also recorded in the Domesday Book . Later only the northern core Lindsey around Lincoln was called Lindsey and thus became one of the three parts of Lincolnshire along with parts of Holland in the southeast and Kesteven in the southwest.
In 1888, a county council was established in Lindsey, Holland and Kesteven. It stayed that way until 1974, when Holland, Kesteven and most of Lindsey were united as Lincolnshire, while the northern part, with Scunthorpe and Grimsby, came to the newly formed county of Humberside .
Through a further municipal reform, Humberside was separated from Lincolnshire in 1996 and with the parts of the area lying south of the Humber it became two independent city districts ( Unitary Authorities ), namely North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire . These are now part of Lincolnshire for ceremonial purposes only; the county has no police force there.
The remaining districts of Lincolnshire are Boston , East Lindsey , Lincoln , South Holland , South Kesteven , North Kesteven, and West Lindsey .
