  About your Area
 

Winteringham is a village in North Lincolnshire and on the south bank of the River Humber, population 989 (census 2001).

The Romans had a settlement here probably called Ad Abum. The Roman road Ermine Street from London and Lincoln to the south crossed the Humber here by way of a ferry or ford to Brough, and from there continued to York. The pre-Roman ridge way also resumed here, called Yarlesgate, or Earlsgate, on its route south and south-west towards the Midlands and Southwest England.

The village, and its neighbour Winterton to the south, were possibly named after the first King of Lindsey - Wintra - though there are several other theories. By the time of Domesday it was a prosperous place with three mills, a fishery and a ferry.

In the nineteenth century there were two maltkilns, a mill, boatyard, brewery, brickyards, and by 1907, the North Lindsey Light Railway. Henry Kirke White, the Nottingham poet to whom are attributed the words of the hymn "Oft in danger Oft in woe", was educated at the Rectory in 1804-5.

Winteringham Fields, an ex Michelin-starred[1] restaurant with an international reputation is situated near the centre of the village.

Also near the centre of the village there are two pubs, The Bay Horse at Gate End and The Ferry Boat Inn in High Burgage. On High Burgage is the newly re-opened corner shop and post office. Down Low Burgage is the local chapel, and this road eventually leads to the Winteringham Haven. Up Market Hill (coming off High Burgage) and on to School Road is the local primary school (Winteringham County Primary School).

[edit] Notes

  1. Until 2005, the restaurant had two Michelin stars; as of 2007, it has one. As of 2008 it has none.
