History

Taking its name from the Hollowgate or ‘hollow way’ which cuts through the ridge of green sandstone, the village of Halton Holegate sits on slightly rising ground on the edge of the Fens, 1½ miles from the market town of Spilsby in Lincolnshire.

There has been a village here since before Norman times, as the Domesday Book shows that there was a church at ‘Haltun’ between the years 1080 and 1086, during which time the survey was made.
