Willingham by Stow, which was mentioned in the Domesday book, is six miles south of Gainsborough and twelve miles north of Lincoln. It has always been a mainly arable farming community with twenty farmers working the land in the late 19th century compared with just a handful now. St.Helen's church dates from the 11th century with registers that document events as far back as 1562 . The Methodist Chapel on High Street (No longer a place of worship) was built in 1885. There have been many business's in the village over the years but now there are two pubs, The Half Moon and The Fox and Hounds, plus the Howson Care Centre which is situated on Marton Lane. Lord Hawke was born in Willingham Rectory (1860).
The main organisations and most often used webpages are listed to your left. For all other sections of the Willingham by Stow website please look at "Site Content" at the bottom of this page. There are dozens of pages of information and space available for you to advertise and promote your services.

Many thanks to all who participated in this year's Horticultural Show. A record number of entries in the Handicraft section showed how busy Willingham residents have been during lockdown. And what an amazingly talented lot we are! There was a good array of fruit and veg. The blooms and the Sturton School pupils’ artwork made the hall look very colourful. Despite all the problems caused by the coronavirus, the Show went on on. More HERE

There is now a similar facility to Facebook which links local communities.
About 25% of our village have already become members.

Covid safe trick or treat
We know there are many children in the village who normally have great fun at Halloween around the houses trick and treating and attending the pumpkin carving activities at the church and village hall. This year our intention is to promote this in a covid safe way. On the 31st October we are having a village pumpkin trail and invite you to take part. Firstly if you are happy to have a pumpkin on display visible from the roadway please register this by emailing the address below as soon as possible and by the 28th October the latest. You may even win a prize. They should be in situ by dusk on the 31st to allow even the younger children to take part. We have been advised that pumpkins will be available to buy locally in the preceding weeks including the village farm shop. If you have children who would like to take part please register them at the same email address by the 30th October. They will be sent a simple form and trail to follow by email for you to print to see how many pumpkins they can find and to vote which they thought was the best . There will be instructions as to where to drop the forms when they have finished. Every child who takes part will receive their well earned goody bag delivered to their home following the event. Entry will be free to any child living in the village. To help fund the goodies if any families can contribute items for these they will be gratefully received and can be dropped off any time prior the event at 35 High Street, The Crest Gainsborough Road or 33 Stow Road.
