Tealby Village.

Tealby is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England, situated on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and 3 miles (5 km) north-east of Market Rasen. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 593

Tealby is noted for the Tennyson d'Eyncourt family, which provided the village hall and school.[citation needed] In the 1980s the school was used for filming the programme Nanny.

I took these photo's in September 2023.

This is a favourite teashop used by walkers and cyclists.

You can take your dog in too, if it's clean!

A pretty cottage in the main street.

The small building on the right is a bridal gown business but for many years begore that
it was the village Butches Shop.

The road through the old part of the village.

An old Chapel converted into a private residence.

This shop is for curtains, blinds etcetera.

Ticked away in a quiet corner.

"The old mill house"
Many years ago Ernie Wise, of Morcombe & Wise fame, was said to have bought this house.

The water wheel long since gone but the mill race still runs past.

A view along the main street.

The Smooting is the name of a narrow lane here.  Try as I might I can't find any info about it.

A ford takes you through the village on The Viking Way.  A long distance footpath.

Heading back the way we came, back to our car.

Crocosmia "Lucifa" growing in a stone wall.

Greaniums, same wall.

A lovely stone built cottage.

Wisteria (I think) growing over the porchway.

An extra Photo took a few days ago at my local Fish & Chip shop, Marklews in Cleethorpes.  This panel of glazed tiles depicts their shop and also the fishing industry in Grimsby, which is adjacent to Cleethorpes.    I took it on my mobile phone while waiting for my fish & chips.


  1. Great photos as always, David. The more I visit your blog the more it makes me I feel I have missed out by never having visited the area. I can see why Ernie Wise would have chosen a house in Lincolnshire. Thanks for your blog posts. All good wishes.

    1. Thank you for visiting Mike, much appreciated. David.

  2. Oh David, this is such a lovely set of photos. Lincolnshire already was one of my favourite counties and your photos confirm that feeling. You've captured the essence of English beauty here. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you Val, it's a much visited village, I'm pleased you liked the pics.
