  • The Parish Council sent an objection to the Planning Inspectorate regarding the chicken plant appeal. This consisted of the original lengthy objection to NLC and further research regarding the effect of these industrial chicken farms on neighbouring areas. Several photographs were added to reflect the beauty of the landscape. The Parish Council have been informed that the Inspector will be making a site visit to the area. It is hoped she will see for herself the loveliness of the countryside and the dreadful effect this would have on Bonby and the surrounding area.

  • Further to the above, after the Parish Council informed NLC Planning Enforcement about their concern and unhappiness about alleged breaches of planning by Mr Keith Wilson of Hall Farm (the industrial chicken plant applicant), he has now submitted a retrospective planning application to try and retain the work carried out without planning permission. This can be viewed on the Planning Portal PA/2017/2051. The closing date for comments will be 4th February.

The Village of Bonby


The village of Bonby nestles against the foot of the North Lincolnshire Wolds to the east of the Ancholme Valley and has existed for centuries. It is first mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was recorded as Bundebi. It is one of the so called Low Villages or Springline villages that stretch alongside the Wolds from Elsham to South Ferriby on the banks of the Humber. These pretty, rural communities are surrounded by mainly arable farmland and enjoy extensive and beautiful views over the Ancholme Valley and the northern most part of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Bonby is situated in the middle of the Low Villages between Worlaby and Saxby All Saints and between the larger market towns of Brigg and Barton on Humber.


Our pretty and thriving village provides a peaceful, safe and pleasant place to

live for all ages and our community strives to keep it as such.

Our small village has a playground and playing field for younger members of the community, the Gilman Trail for walking and picnicking for all ages, a village hall available for all events, ancient and lovely St Andrews Church, a restaurant and a village shop and post office. The surrounding countryside provides beautiful long walks and cycle rides, or simply to sit on the benches at the top of the Wold enjoying stunning views and sunsets.
