Grazing marshes workshop


A free workshop looking at the history of the Skidbrooke and Saltfleet areas in Lincolnshire’s coastal grazing marshes is held at St Botolph’s Church, Skidbrooke, on Sunday September 22 from 2pm to 5pm.

There will be a guided walk through the fields around Skidbrooke and Saltfleet using LIDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) images and aerial photographs to help understand landscape and historic features encountered on the ground, including old channels, salt mounds, medieval village remains and ridge and furrow earthworks.

Starting from the beautiful church of St Botolph in Skidbrooke the walk will follow a circular route over fields and lanes to the outskirts of Saltfleet, returning to St Botolph’s church, a distance of around five km, expected to take about two hours.

The walk will be led by local archaeologist Jim Bonnor and local historian and farmer Martin Chapman.

There is parking at St Botolph’s church. Suitable clothing for the prevailing weather conditions is advised along with sturdy footwear. Please take hot drinks if you wish as there are no facilities on site.
