Fulletby is a village and a civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and 3 miles (5 km) north-east from Horncastle, 9 miles (14 km) south from Louth, and 8 miles (13 km) north-west from Spilsby. The parish covers approximately 1,950 acres (8 km2).

History[edit]

The village is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book.

In 1841 the village consisted primarily of mud-and-stud cottages.[citation needed] In 1849 six Roman urns were dug up in the parish. They contained burned bone fragments; one contained a Roman coin.[1] In 1885 Kelly's Directory reported that the area's chief crops were wheat, barley, oats and turnips, and that the village had both a Wesleyan and a Primitive Methodist chapel.[1]

Fulletby Grade II listed Anglican church, dedicated to St Andrew,[2] is in Early English style. The church was rebuilt in 1705, but its tower fell down in 1799. It was rebuilt again in 1865.[1] The Church is now part of the Hemingby Group of the Horncastle Deanery and seats around 120.[3]
