Hubbard’s Hills is located in Louth, Lincolnshire. Hubbard’s Hills is a glacial overspill channel formed as the last ice age ended about 40,000 years ago. A marginal lake of meltwater trapped between glacial ice sheet and the Lincolnshire Wolds poured over a chalk ridge and gouged a 125-foot-deep (38 m), steep-sided valley. The river Lud, far too small to create such a valley, now meanders through it.
A registered charity, took over the running of the Hills back on April 1 2009 and is dedicated to the restoration of the Louth beauty spot to its former glory. It is a lovely place to spend the day – kids love the hills for rolling and exploring and there are stepping stones too plus some great picnic spots.
There are two entrances to Hubbard’s Hills – Crowtree Lane and also from Halfpenny Lane, Hallington. The cafe and car parking at Crowtree Lane entrance to Hubbards Hills is privately run and car parking is chargeable. Dogs are welcome and free to roam except when the signs indicate. Bins are provided throughout the park and request these be used for the disposal of animal waste.
