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.
