Ruskington is one of the largest villages in Lincolnshire and can boast a thriving community, a picturesque environment and a fascinating history.
The medieval market town of Long Sutton and its neighbour Sutton Bridge, which are two places that help make up the Suttons on the Wash, may be considered by some people as sleepy backwaters but as everyone knows appearances can be deceptive.
Welton, just six miles outside Lincoln, may be thought of as a quiet commuter village but it is increasing in popularity as its charm, uniqueness and easy access is appreciated more and more.
Celebrations were the order of the day in 2015 for the historically important Georgian and Victorian market town of Caistor and residents are hoping 2016 will be much of the same.
First impressions of the picturesque Lincolnshire village are that it is a quiet rural retreat with a sleepy air of a bygone era.
