About Skellingthorpe

This is a large village lying around three miles from Lincoln which is fringed by the Fosdyke Navigation. Visitors will find a few shops, pubs and an interesting Anglican church.

Skellingthorpe Old Wood provides a place for leisure and pleasure. This is a glorious woodland area featuring many broadleaved trees, pines and spruce. It offers wonderful colours in spring when the earth becomes covered with bluebells, and in the autumn leaves of red and gold flutter from branches, making a deep soft carpet for your feet. Although parking is difficult, the wood is well worth a visit both for its quiet beauty and its abundance of wildlife.

Skellingthorpe is ideal for anyone wishing to discover this lovely eastern corner of Lincolnshire, it has many interesting towns and villages, the meandering River Witham, and the City of Lincoln offers excellent shopping as well as its magnificent, historic cathedral.
