“Britain from Above” gets closer! But now the bad news!
Britain from above shows aerial photos taken from all over the UK, between 1919 and 1953. Recently added to the website are photos of Winterton and Roxby - but not Winteringham.
The bad news is that ALL photographs taken by the project that are in usable condition, have now been placed on the Britain from Above website .... and NONE feature Winteringham. There are loads for Scunthorpe, Roxby, and Winterton. Some for Horkstow and Barton, but none for our village.
There are two aerial photos of a boat off Winteringham. To find them on the BFA website, search for “Brough.” Whitton Lightship is also on the site.

Gale ... and a half!
The high wind on Monday [27th February 1860] dislodged many tiles from the housetops, making it dangerous to persons passing along the streets. A great many slates were also blown off the church.
All under the hammer
A huge auction at the Bay Horse included the sale of the Bay Horse AND the Ferry Boat Inn, plus shops, houses and land.
First snow storm
The earth moves!
Winteringham has an earthquake ... epicentre at Market Rasen and 5.4 on the Richter scale. No-one hurt, but villagers were advised to check their buildings for any damage.
