Metheringham, Sots Hole and Tanvats Parish Council - Home page


Welcome to the website of Metheringham, Sots Hole and Tanvats Parish Council

Welcome to our new parish council website. This site is currently being developed. Check back for the latest updates and information. Please contact the clerk if there is anything you wish to see that is not currently on the site.


Present day Metheringham has a population of some 4,000 inhabitants and is well served by the High Street and Caroline Road shops, a doctors surgery, pubs, restaurants, food outlets and community library.

The well used Village Hall with its adjoining public toilet and car park is located off Middle Street. In addition, the Methodist Church Hall and St Wilfrid's Church Hall provide venues for local organisations. There are over 30 active groups for all ages of the community and other facilities include a bowls club, open air swimming pool (summer only) and playing fields. Both the latter are close to the Primary School, which has been extended and updated and takes children from both the village and the surrounding area. Secondary education is provided at Branson and Sleaford. Road and rail links to Lincoln, Boston and Sleaford are good and well used by school children, students, the retired and those going to work. The main employer is Eros Laboratories and other employment is found in agriculture, whilst an industrial/commercial estate is adjacent to the railway. Both Church and Chapel play their part in village life and the annual Feast and Fayre takes place in October, when both villagers and visitors take over the High Street with stalls and entertainment.

Each evening the War Memorial is illuminated and looks out towards Cross Hill, where a new cross has been installed similar in design to the original.

The village lies at the centre of the Spires and Steeples Arts and Heritage trail and we welcome visitors, walers and cyclists to our thriving village. We hope that you will wish to pause and explore the history and heritage of which we, in Metheringham, are so proud.
