If you missed the open afternoon at the quarry last December, there’s a second chance to find out about the archaeological dig hosted by Alan Stephenson, Operations Manager at the Woodhall Spa Quarry. Lydia Hendry, Community Archaeologist, Heritage Lincolnshire, who took us round the site last time, will be giving a free talk to update progress, at the Coningsby Community Hall on April 23rd, at 6.30pm.
The unsightly remains of Lindum Cottage, demolished in March 2018, have at last been moved out of sight. The “eyesore” issue was originally raised at the Parish Council meeting last November, and was discussed once again at this month’s meeting. Following action by East Lindsey District Council, in December the present landowner, understood to be Coningsby building company Costellow and Tokelove, crushed the demolition rubble, but left the pile close to the main road through the village, causing further complaints by those living near the site and others passing through.
Please note: This summary has been written from my personal notes, taken at the meeting. The official minutes, taken by the Clerk to the Council, are normally published on the Parish Council Website when approved by Councillors.
Acting Chairman Councillor Penny Stones welcomed Councillors and five members of the public who came along to this meeting, held in the School Hall last Thursday evening.

In response to the latest enquiry, the Parish Council has been advised by Steve Brookes, Lincolnshire Broadband Programme Manager, on the current situation regarding the lack of fibre broadband in the village:
“Having looked at what I believe are the relevant postcodes for Kirkby On Bain, I can see that work is currently on hold because of high build costs which are sitting at circa three times the upper limit per premises at this point. However, we are still looking at alternatives in an effort to bring costs down. I appreciate that this isn’t particularly helpful at this time, but please be assured that we are working to try to find a resolution.”
