Louth is a market town and civil parish within the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.GeographyLouth is situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds where they meet the Lincolnshire Marsh and is often known as the "capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds". Louth sits to the east of a gorge carved into the Wolds which today forms the Hubbard's Hills natural area, which was formed from a glacial overspill channel during the Last glacial period. Today the town's River Lud meanders through the gorge before entering the town. The town developed where the ancient trackway along the Wolds, Barton Street crossed the river Lud.Louth has a total resident population of 15,930.The Greenwich Meridian passes through the town and is marked on Eastgate with a plaque on the north side of the street, just east of the junction with Northgate. The three-mile (5 km) £6.6 million A16 Louth Bypass opened in August 1991. The former route through the town is now designated as the B1520.HistoryThree handaxes have been found on the wolds surrounding Louth, dating from between 424,000 to 191,000 years ago, indicating inhabitation in Paleolithic era. Bronze Age archeological finds include a 'barbed and tanged' arrowhead found in the grounds of Monks' Dyke Tennyson College.
