Visit Coningsby and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Coningsby, Lincolnshire. A Fenland village near Tattershall, notable for its church of St Michael and All Angels which has a handsome l5th century tower with a pathway through it. Its unique feature is a one-handed clock, l6½ ft in diameter, the largest in the world.
Laurence Eusdon, an 18th century rector of Coningsby, was said to have been made Poet Laureate because he flattered the Lord Chamberlain. According to Thomas Gray, Eusdon was “a drunken parson” and certainly his lines dedicated to George II on his coronation have nothing to recommend them. “They virtues shine peculiarly nice,” he carolled, “Ungloomed with a confinity to vice”.
About a mile North up the Al53 is the pretty village of Tumby, East of which is a 100-acre wood full of oak and larch and wild lilies of the valley in season.
