Redbourne Church

Redbourne is a village and civil parish in the North Lincolnshire district of Lincolnshire , England. The village is situated near the A15 road, and 5 miles (8 km) south from Brigg.

The name Redbourne is derived from the Old English Name "Hredburna" meaning "reedy burn", a reference to a stream running through the village.

Redbourne Church - The parish church of St Andrew was made redundant from the Church of England in 1978 and is now maintained by The Churches Conservation Trust. It is a Grade I listed building. Although the church has 14th- and 15th-century origins, the bulk of the existing building is 18th-century and represents a Georgian Gothic style, using a mixture of squared and coursed rubble limestone with ashlar dressings. Its square tower is approximately 90 feet (27 m) high. The alterations of 1772-4 in the gothic style were by the Lincoln architects Thomas and Henry Lumby and the chapel on the south side of the chancel served as a mausoleum for the family of the Dukes of St Albans.

The Red Lion Hotel coaching inn on the village green dates from the 17th century.

A conservation area was designated in August 1985 by the old Humberside County Council and covers the historic village core but excludes the more recent residential developments on the periphery.

 

Community Planting

REDBOURNE GARDENING GROUP 

The hard work, dedication and pride of our Gardening Group is clear.   For the second year running Redbourne has won the 'CPRE Best Community Planting Award 2017' for our region and came 2nd in the 'Best Kept Village 2017' award - once again just 1 point behind the winners which this year was Elsham.

 

Redbourne entered the 'East Midlands RHS in Bloom 2016' competition for the very first time in 2016, and we are very proud to have won 'Silver Gilt' for the village category in our first entry to this competition. It was noted by the judges that this first time entry and award was truly significant as many communities spent years trying to achieve 'Silver Gilt' - commendation for the commitment and hard work by the Gardening Group.

Additional 'Judges Awards' were given to 2 village residents, Mr Pike & Mr Johnson for displays at St Andrews Close corner. Their gardens and displays were outstanding, the awards were an accomplishment to them both and recognise their community spirit.

The 'Redbourne In Bloom Group', worked very hard securing funding from local businesses and residents, for which we are very grateful and allowed Redbourne to enter this competition. This small group spent many hours procuring plants, planting, watering and maintaining the flower beds and boxes in order to attain this prestigious award. Special thanks are expressed to the Huntercombe Centre for all their help, both for their generous donation and importantly help with watering our planters and boxes. 

After many years of service to the village, Roy & Mary Muggleton have decided to ‘hang up their trowels’ and retire from the Gardening Group. Their help and support has been immense and they will be sorely missed. The GG are looking for volunteers, if you can help in any way, however small, please contact us.

We also have to report the theft of the water bowser, without this equipment the GG will find it almost impossible to water our plants, again if you can help please contact the clerk or any member of the Parish Council.
