Bardney is a village 16 km (10 miles) east of Lincoln, sitting on the north side of the River Witham in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England, notable for the huge British Sugar factory, which ceased processing on 9th February 2001. There is a mediaeval abbey, ruined in Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries, a church and a small primary school.
Bardney Abbey gave rise to a local legend. When St Oswald died, his body was interred in the abbey, and disappeared overnight. A holy miracle was attached to this incident, but if someone was to say 'Were you born in Bardney?', you were guilty of leaving a door open!

- In 1972 the area was host to the Great Western Festival, a two-day pop concert (also known as the Bardney Festival). Funded by Lord Harlech and the actor Stanley Baker (amongst others) it attracted 30,000 people to the venue, held at the nearby Tupholme Abbey ruins. Amongst the artistes playing were Roxy Music and Status Quo. Despite its popularity the show lost money due mainly to bad weather which blighted the event.
