Beesby (Beesby in the Marsh)


Note: There is also a hamlet of Beesby in Heydour parish near Grantham - that hamlet has virtually disappeared.

Description and Travel

Beesby is both a village and a parish that lies about 30 miles east of the City of Lincoln in the marshy area about a mile south of Maltby le Marsh and 3.5 miles NE of Alford on the A1104 trunk road that runs from Alford to Mablethorpe on the coast. This has always been a small, rural parish. The parish covers only 1,171 acres, much of which is converted salt marsh.

Beesby is also on the edge of the Wolds. Many of the homes built in the 18th and 19th century were Mud and Stud style buildings. If you are planning a visit:
