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, Leanings Transport (Haulage) 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 the site index at the bottom of this page. There are dozens of pages of information and space available for you to advertise and promote your services.

Willingham by Stow Scout Group
After many, many years of service Mary Clark has retired as Beaver Leader and we are now looking for volunteers to help run our Beaver Scout Colony. At the moment Beavers meet in the Village Hall in Willingham on a Tuesday evening 5.30pm for one hour. Age 6 & 7 year olds - girls and boys. Willingham Group also has Cub, Scout and Explorer Sections; scouting is growing across Lincolnshire and we are part of the National Scout Association.
You do not need to have previous scouting experience, as volunteer leader training is provided; you will also be part of the team and meet other leaders.  A DBS is required. So, if you would like to help and support our young people and you are interested in finding out more; please give Robin Wright a call on 07984 340563.
