About Swinderby

Swinderby is located in spacious countryside close to where the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire borders meet.

Historically the village is most noted for the Anglican parish church dedicated to all Saints. It is a handsome church, mostly showing Norman architecture, but has restoration work from the middle and latter part of the 19th century and some work from 1910 when further restoration was carried out. However, this does not detract from the overall beauty of the building. The interior is rich with church treasures and outside in the peaceful churchyard, visitors can see several ancient graves and tombs.

The town is very pleasant, it is made more vibrant and exciting when the huge antiques, collectables, home and garden show is presented at the old RAF airfield in Swinderby. This draws traders from all parts of the country and likewise, is widely attended by the public. The fair enjoys an enviable reputation, it is regularly featured on national television, most particularly by the BBC's Bargain Hunt.

Swinderby has all the usual amenities including village shop, and inns where many a "deal" is struck between friendly antique dealers!

The village can be found sitting on a rise above the waters of the River Trent, it is approximately 9 miles south-west of Lincoln and 7 miles north-east of Newark-on-Trent.

There is plenty of accommodation for those wishing to stay, either to visit the antique fair or to discover the beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds and Fens.
