Our villages are nestled on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), on account of its unspoilt countryside and high scenic beauty. Throughout the year the passing seasons paint the surrounding countryside in an ever-changing array of colours and shades, whilst the area’s wildlife provides glimpses of nature that are rarely seen in more built-up districts.
The parish comprises three villages, the largest being East Barkwith, situated on the A157 and approximately 13miles (21kms) north-east from the city and county town of Lincoln. Today, East Barkwith is a modern village with a bustling community and has excellent amenities boasting services such as the local shop and Post Office, a traditional country pub “The Crossroads Inn”, a village hall and play park. The village also has a Grade 11 listed church dedicated to Saint Mary, dating from the early 12th century, with later restorations and built of greenstone, limestone and ironstone.
Surrounding East Barkwith are the smaller villages of West Barkwith and Panton, both of which have long histories as farming communities. The parish also includes the deserted medieval village (DMV) of Hardwick, which is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. The surrounding area offers access to the County Town of Lincoln, bustling market towns such as Louth, scenic rolling countryside, an abundance of routes for both walking and cycling, nature reserves and country inns. Within striking distance are the blue flag beaches of the Lincolnshire coast and the varied entertainments offered by the seaside resorts.
