About Harmston

This is another picturesque village lying on the fringe of the great City of Lincoln. Harmston grew up on an escarpment from which there are dramatic views of the Witham valley, and it is perhaps this river-side position which has given this lovely pastoral place much of its character.

The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086, when it was recorded as an agricultural area dominated by farms. In those far off days farms were referred to as "tofts" and relics relating to those times can be seen in the Chapel Lane area of the village.

Harmston's Manor House was built in the 18th-century for Sir Charles Thorold. Harmston Hall, was completed in 1710 and was also the home of Sir George Thorold who became Lord Mayor of London in 1719. Later, in the 20th-century the hall became a hospital, and more latterly it was developed back into a private home.

There is a small parish church dedicated to All Saints, and a lively village pub.

In recent times the village has undergone a certain amount of expansion, and although this has not detracted from its rural charm it has turned Harmston into a dormitory village for the business world of Lincoln.

The larger town's of Waddington and Washingborough in the eastern reaches of the beautiful River Witham, are both just a short drive away.
