River Lymn, Spilsby, Lincolnshire

River Lymn, Spilsby, Lincolnshire

The River Lymn rises on the eastern slope in the Wolds.

It flows south-eastwards to the Lincolnshire Marsh, where it becomes known as the Steeping River on the boundary of Great Steeping parish. The main channel is supplemented by the Wainfleet Relief Channel as it passes Wainfleet All Saints, and the relief channel is joined by the old course of the Lymn.

Once the two channels rejoin, there are three flood defence structures to protect the region from flooding by the North Sea.
