Tealby is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England, situated on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and 3 miles (5 km) north-east from Market Rasen. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 593.[1]


Tealby is noted for the Tennyson d'Eyncourt family which donated the village hall and school.[citation needed] In the 1980s the school was used for filming the programme Nanny.[citation needed]

In the early 2000s the village was granted permission[by whom?] for a shop to be built, now run by volunteers.[citation needed] The village post office was threatened with closure, however it remains open at certain times of the week.[citation needed] Tealby church, built using local orange-iron stone, is dedicated to All Saints and dates back to the 12th century; it holds memorials to the Tennyson d'Eyncourt family.[citation needed] Tealby residents included Bernie Taupin, who lived on Beck Hill.[citation needed]

The Kings Head, one of two public houses in the village, is one of the oldest in the country and retains a thatched roof.[citation needed]

Tealby has a Bowls Club, and a Lawn Tennis Club whose tennis courts are a facility for the wider district, the club promoting a Young Leaders Tennis Course and competitions. The village hall, run by a committee, is used for parties, social events, playgroups, school events and meetings.[citation needed]

Bayons Manor[edit]

Tealby's Bayons Manor was once owned by Charles Tennyson, later Tennyson d'Eyncourt, the uncle of Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The estate was purchased in 1944 by a local farmer, primarily for the farmland as the house was already derelict and becoming dangerous. Because of its dangerous condition a subsequent owner had it demolished in 1964. Bayons Manor was a rare example of a Victorian stately home in the style of a moated castle.[2][3][4]
