Welcome to Wickenby Parish Council

Wickenby is a hamlet and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) south-west from the town of Market Rasen.

The parish church is a limestone Grade II* listed building dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Lawrence and dating from the 12th century, although it was restored in 1868 by George Gilbert Scott. In the east wall of the south aisle is set a brass to Henry Millner, who died in 1635.[2]
