About Saxilby

This large village lies on the border where Nottingham meets Lincolnshire. It is an attractive village full of rural charm, on a clear moonlit night there are enchanting views of Lincoln's great cathedral lit up against the night-time sky.

The village is dominated by the Foss Dyke Canal, a waterway built by the Romans and later deepened by Henry I to allow safe passage for larger vessels. These days a pleasant part of a day out in Saxilby is to sit and enjoy gaily painted narrow boats as they course the waters. Here too, you can often catch sight of many species of wildlife.

Saxilby Tower Mill is one of the village's more noted buildings. It was constructed in 1823 and continued to work until around 1920. Its sails were removed in 1927 and by 1931 the cap had been removed. The mill now stands preserved, but disused.

The Sun Inn is an atmospheric pub at the side of the Foss Dyke Canal, it is an attractive building which belies the lurid, ghostly tales surrounding the inn, which is thought to be one of the most haunted in the region.

The Ship is another of Saxilby's pleasant pubs, this too, sits on the banks of the Foss Dyke which eventually links with the River Witham at Lincoln and the River Trent at Torksey.

Lincoln show ground is within easy driving distance, and many old RAF stations can be found in the area, one of which is RAF Scampton, once home to the famous Dam Busters, and the Red Arrows who can sometimes be seen practicing in the wide Lincolnshire skies
