Moortown is a hamlet in the civil parish of South Kelsey, and in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.[1] It is at the crossroads of the B1205 and B1434 roads, 3 miles (5 km) south-west from Caistor, 7 miles (11 km) south-east from Brigg and 14 miles (23 km) west from Grimsby.[1] The population is included in the civil parish of South Kelsey.[2]

The nearest primary school is in North Kelsey and the nearest secondary schools are in Caistor. Moortown has a public house, The Skipworth Arms, a campsite, bus shelter, and a letterbox.

Previously there was a Victorian railway station (opposite the Skipworth Arms) from which trains to Lincoln and Grimsby ran. There are weekday bus services to Brigg and Scunthorpe.

Golden Jubilee[edit]

In 2002 village residents marked the Golden Jubilee of Elizabeth II. There was a Jubilee Day event and a permanent memorial constructed, the latter a decorative sign with brass plaque adjacent to an existing Silver Jubilee bench.[citation needed]
