About Bassingham

Bassingham, mentioned in the Doomsday Book, is a large, flourishing village located close to the banks of the River Witham, a few miles south-west of the Cathedral City of Lincoln.

It is known mostly for its lovely old church dedicated to Saint Michael and All Angels. The church has a unique history, it was built before the Norman Conquest and has been rebuilt twice since the Conquest. It is of the Gothic style, with a sturdy tower crowned with graceful pinnacles. The tower has been rebuilt twice, in 1782 and again in 1887. A major restoration of the building took place in 1860, but much original work was retained and inside there are interesting features as well as beautiful windows. The church stands in a lovely meadow setting, surrounded by a tree studded churchyard where visitors can see the graves and tombs of several centuries.

As well as all the usual amenities Bassingham has several noted inns, The Five Bells, dating from the 18th century offers excellent food and drink in atmospheric surroundings exuding character and olde-worlde charm.

The village offers plenty of opportunity for leisure, not only is there the delight of the Witham but there is also the River Brant to explore. A short distance away is the Nottingham Museum of Aircraft, and at Newark-upon-Trent there is a museum recalling the history and social heritage of the area.

Bassingham makes an ideal base for visiting a whole host of little villages occupying this favoured part of the Lincolnshire Fens.
