About Ingham

Ingham, from its earliest dawning's at the time of the Doomsday Book has enjoyed a tranquil existence. The village lies in a lovely area between Lincoln and Gainsborough, amidst some of the shire's most stunning scenery.

It is a village of which you can rightfully say "not a lot happened" that is until the Second World War when it came to prominence as a base for the R.A.F. The countryside was broken up by the institution of three grass runways, and two Polish squadrons were based here, these included the 300 Bomber Command from the Ist Polish Wing. Later the R.A.F's 199 Squadron moved to the base. Lincoln has many reminders of War time exploits when it was home to various service divisions, these can be explored through guided tours which take in a visit to Ingham.

The parish church is dedicated to All Saints, it is a pleasant stone building which was partly rebuilt in 1792 and has since been the subject of further enhancement. The church is topped with a small bell-tower, and has a tiny stone porch. Inside, there are nice pews and other treasures. The church lies within a quite churchyard setting surrounded by old graves and tombstones.

The village is worth exploring on foot, the locals are very friendly - ready to stop and chat so that you learn a little of the surroundings. Away from the village, there are a whole host of hamlets clustered around old churches, and hills dominated by solitary windmills. In many of these places, just as with Ingham, leave your car and amble around on foot. It will be well worth the effort.
