The Village.....

The village has a local pub The Pack Horse Inn where you can enjoy real ales and fine food. We also have a 1st class restaurant The Black Swan Bistro serving excellent, award winning food.

The village dates back to Roman times and although not mentioned in the Doomsday book, the settlement of Holme is mentioned, (now Holme Spinney) the boundaries of which included Beckingham, Fenton and Stragglethorpe.

There are also many interesting buildings and features such as our churchAll Saints, parts of which can be dated back to Saxon or early Norman times.

The surrounding countryside is excellent for walking and spotting wildlife, especially along the river Witham, which runs along side the village. If you are thinking of walking then the national grid reference is SK 8753.
