To celebrate Lincolnshire Day we want you to nominate your Lincolnshire Place of Culture for 2008 and tell us why your town or village is special.
Lincolnshire is one of the largest counties in England, yet it has a population of less than a million people. It also boasts the shortest length of county border where it meets the county of Northamptonshire for just 19 metres.
The county boasts a wealth of history and heritage and is home to the world famous Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The historic buildings of Lincolnshire have featured in several films and television series including Pride and Prejudice and The Da Vinci Code.
