New Bolingbroke is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the Lincolnshire Fens, and about 6 miles (10 km) east from Coningsby. The village was established by John Parkinson, who was a steward to Sir Joseph Banks.[1] It is in the civil parish of Carrington.

Landmarks[edit]

New Bolingbroke Church, dedicated to St Peter, was built in 1854 by Samuel Sanders Teulon.[2] It is a Grade II listed building.[3]

The village hall was built in the 1820s when John Parkinson established New Bolingbroke as a market town.[4] It is a Grade II listed building.[5]

The Crescent, a curved line of red-brick shops and houses, was built in 1823 by John Parkinson to house the workers of his weaving factory; the houses are now all privately owned.[6] The Crescent is Grade II listed.[7]

New Bolingbroke had two working windmills. One, Rundles Mill, is Grade II Listed and dates from the mid-19th century, and has been disused since at least 1906.[8] Made of red brick, it is a tower mill.[9] The other, Watkinsons Mill, dates from 1821 and is also Grade II listed.[10] It was working until 1944 when the weather beam broke. It continued with an engine for a time, but today only the stump remains, which is used as a store.[11]

New Bolingbroke railway station was sited here.[12]
