Welcome to the new South Witham Website which has been put together with funds donated by South Witham Parish Council and a lot of hard work from the various active groups in the village.
Where to find us
South Witham is a village and civil parish, of about 7km², in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire. The village, which takes its name from the River Witham which rises nearby, sits in the South West Corner of Lincolnshire, bordering both Leicestershire and Rutland. With Grantham is to north, Stamford to the south, Oakham is to the South West, Melton Mowbray is due West and to the East is Bourne. The A1 offers easy access to London, and access to the motorway network both north and south.
The village church is dedicated to St John the Baptist, and was first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. In 1880 what is now South Witham Community Primary School opened in Water lane. In 1968 the school was extended to cope with the increase in population afforded, in 1966, by the Royal Air Force (RAF) building a large new estate on the north side of the village. This trebled the size of the village virtually overnight and the primary school increased by a similar amount and now serves the village and the surrounding rural areas. Older children can attend schools in either Oakham, Stamford or Grantham.
There is also a village hall, which is used regularly by various groups, two shops and two public houses, The Blue Cow and The Angel.
