Pictures of Saxilby
in the county of Lincolnshire
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

Random England fact:
Chapel Street in Penzance is home to many tales of the past including the first announcement of Nelson's victory at Trafalgar from the minstrel's gallery in the Union Hotel. Local fishermen had learnt of the fact from the ship hurrying to Falmouth to bring the news officially to Britain. The house at no. 25 Chapel Street was home to Maria Branwell before she moved to Yorkshire , married the Reverend Patrick Bronte and became mother to the famous Bronte family. She never lost her love of Cornwall, as she lay on her death bed she had the maid prop her up so she could watch the maid clear and prepare the grate as she did it the same way as it was done all those years ago, the Cornish way.
