Parts of Lincolnshire

The three Parts of the English county of Lincolnshire are or were divisions of the second-largest county in England. They existed as units of local government until it was reviewed in the 1970s. They were similar in nature to the three ridings of Yorkshire.

The three Parts were:

Each of the Parts had long had separate county administration (Quarter Sessions), and each was created a discrete administrative county with its own county council in 1889.

This arrangement lasted until 1974, when the three councils were replaced by a single Lincolnshire County Council, with northern Lindsey going to form part of the new County of Humberside (since abolished and replaced south of the Humber with two unitary authorities).

Although the Parts no longer exist as units of local government, they are still recognised as broad geographical areas of Lincolnshire, and their names live on in some of the county's district councils (East and West Lindsey, North and South Kesteven, and South Holland).
