Photographs and pre-1900 land records in the possession of the Allington and Sedgebrook History Society have been digitized using a digital camera and a scanner and uploaded to this website and to Flickr.
The original photographs have been protected as best as can be done in a normal building using conservation methods (Melinex® pockets inside a conservation standard box, from Conservation by Design)
Two hard copies were made for use for display and to be used for further copies thereby reducing the risk of damage to the originals.
The original land deeds dating from 1686 onwards are to be deposited in the Lincolnshire Archives as they are fragile and in need of professional storage. The deed from 1857 was retained, as this was in good condition and could still be used for display. This may also be transferred to the Archive if needed. Read more →

For the last few months the latest planning applications in Allington have featured in the main news column on the front page of this website. These news items provided the location of the application, a short description and a link to the application details on the SKDC website.
They were taking up quite a bit of space and they have been moved into the right hand column just below the Twitter feed. They now appear as a simple list of links to the news items where the information provided remains unchanged. The list features the most recent applications and there is a further link to view all items in the planning application category.
Please note that the links to the SKDC website won’t remain live for very long once the applications have been determined.
