SNOWY VILLAGES

Our villages provide a wealth of photographic opportunities, perhaps none more so than when the snow falls; romantic, traditional, Christmas card scenes abound..

BIG SKIES

From sunrise to sunset, our wide horizons offer stunning cloud formations, intense colours and views that stretch for miles.  After sunset, on a clear night, the Milky Way is breathtaking.

BUILDINGS

Although many of our buildings are recent, Minting was mentioned in the Domesday book and we have a scheduled ancient monument site of an alien priory, and some buildings from around 1660.

LANDSCAPE

Nestling at the foot of the Wolds and with the Lincolnshire Limewoods as our backdrop, our farming landscape is dotted with settlements; its tranquility belies it’s past as the social centre of Lincolnshire life in Jane Austin’s era.

If you think it won’t happen to us  remember the big freezes of 1947 and 1963 and the long winter of 2013! In a world now so dependent upon electricity, how would your family cope?  If you would like to get involved in helping to design an emergency plan for our villages, please email us at parishclerk@mintingandgautby.co.uk

SUPERFAST BROADBAND HAS FINALLY ARRIVED IN GAUTBY AND MINTING!

Lincoln-based company AB Internet have been installing in our villages since May 27th, 2014 and several sites have been successfully connected.  There are, however, several properties who have not been  connected initially and AB are hoping to bring another mast site online shortly, which may give the other properties line of sight to the AB signal.  AB have promised to keep the Parish Council abreast of developments and to contact those who missed out once a suitable new mast is ready.
