With direct links to the Pilgrim Fathers the town nestles at the edge of three counties, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire an area of quaint villages and market towns. From around every corner and through every alleyway is a haven for the discerning shopper with stylish shops, bistros, tea rooms and wine bars.
