The Village of Redbourne

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.

There is a play area set aside next to the  Churchyard. Following the consultation for the Play Area, plans have been drawn up and the Parish Council is currently trying to raise funds to progress this project. See News page for further updates.
