  About your Area
 

Whaplode is a parish in South Holland District, Lincolnshire, England.

Contents

[edit] Geography

In old documents, it is sometimes called Whapload. The main village lies on the marine silt ridge, known as the Townlands, which rises between the former saltmarsh and the former fen to be found around The Wash. This ridge follows the A151. Its neighbours on the Townland are Holbeach and Moulton.

[edit] History

Owing to the historical development of the area, there are other places which use the Whaplode name in conjunction with another. When the parishes were originally laid out, a thousand or so years ago, in order to give each enough resources to provide a living, they were made long and narrow. In this way each parish had its share of marsh for pasture and perhaps, salt making, townland for arable and fen for fowling, thatch and turf. As the wetlands were reclaimed, other settlements were made in the newly inhabitable places and these needed to be distinguished from the main village. In Whaplode parish, these outlying places are Whaplode St Catherine (TF3420)and Whaplode Drove (TF3113). The village used to have a railway station to the south of the village on the former Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway.

[edit] Amenities

The village church is dedicated to St Mary. The village pubs are the Star Inn and the Lamb & Flag, both on High Road (A151). The Co-op has a store as part of a TOTAL garage on the A151.
