Saxilby Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Lincolnshire...

Saxilby is a large village north-west of Lincoln, near the border with Nottinghamshire.

It is located on the Foss Dyke, the oldest canal in England, constructed by the Romans around 120 AD to connect the River Trent to the River Witham at Lincoln.

Although a mediaeval village, the coming of the railway in 1849 started the expansion of the village and now it is mainly a dormitory for Lincoln.
