Lincolnshire Villains: Rogues, Rascals and Reprobates

166 pages2 hours


In the past, the east shore of Lincolnshire’s long coastline was well adapted for smuggling and the rural quality of the county aided the transport and hiding of contraband goods. In addition to the pirates, coastal criminals, and countryside rogues there was also murder and mayhem aplenty in such cities as Lincoln, Grimsby, Boston, and Stamford. Moreover, being near to the north/south routes from London meant that Lincolnshire was a haven for highwaymen and footpads—even the infamous Dick Turpin had a Lincolnshire connection. With exciting and dramatic tales featuring the worst of Lincolnshire’s villains, this book is sure to inform and fascinate everyone interested in Lincolnshire’s criminal past.
