Saxilby and District History Group

In association with Heritage Lincolnshire, we hold an exhibition in the Village Hall as part of the annual Heritage Open Days, and attract several hundred visitors.

We assisted Lincolnshire Waterways Partnership in the refurbishment of the Foss Canal Moorings, providing them with photographs and text for the information displays.

There is a permanent display in the local library, which we change at regular intervals.

The Group published a History Trail leaflet a few years ago. We have added to this by erecting twenty plaques on buildings of interest around the village. The plaques show early 20th century photographs of the site, and give a brief description. We were recently awarded a Certificate of Excellence by the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology for this project.

You can also see us at the Lincolnshire History Fair, held annually at different locations throughout the county.
