About us at Alford
This Website is devoted to promoting the local Community. It is primarily financed by the People of Alford and district. Our objective is to inform the World about us; to tell them about ourselves, our Town and what we offer to the Visitor, Potential Resident and Local People who live in Lincolnshire.
A special thanks to the Alford Crafmarket and the Civic Trust for their support and encouragement in this Community Project.

Alford is situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds in which is great for rambling and cycling.
