JOHN VIGAR`S CHURCHES OF THE LINCOLNSHIRE WOLDS AND MARSH

MONDAY 8th to THURSDAY 11th April 2024

Join me for a tour exploring a wide variety of churches. Staying at the North Shore Hotel on the edge of the Golf Links at Skegness on a DBB basis. The tour starts at Skegness Station at 2.00pm and ends there at 1.00pm on Thursday (suggested train from London at 11.06 change at Grantham. On Thursday the Skegness return train leaves at 1.15pm). This year two lunches are included in the price, meaning there will be no extras to pay, and the tour includes all coach travel.
