Welcome to Worlaby Parish Council

Latest News & Events 

 Elsham Parish Council are having problems with regard to the misuse of the Elsham Nature Reserve (formerly) the quarry as a mountain bike track.

The Police have been informed and North Lincolnshire Council Safer Neighbourhoods Team who are monitoring the area.

The culprits are damaging the woodland and paths and there have been quite a few near misses of hitting walkers and dogs.

Signage has been ripped down on several occasions, advising that no cycles are permitted.

Not only are youths and adults riding into the site but parents/adults dropping the youths off and unloading their cycles.

Action will be taken if anyone is caught.

YouTube evidence has been sent to the Safer Neighbourhoods Team.


Last year concerns were raised with regard to the H & S of 2 large trees on the Pleasure Ground (which have consequently been removed) and the 4 large trees along the Markie Path. These trees are breaking up the path and surrounding drives and roads and it is becoming increasingly difficult for wheelchairs and buggies to navigate around them.

The Environmental Officer at the time advised that the trees should be removed and other trees planted elsewhere in the parish, therefore the local authority (NLC) raised a planning application for their removal.

NLC received a letter of complaint about the removal of the 4 trees along the Markie Path and until the Parish Council confirm what they would like them to do it is now on hold.

The intensions to remove the trees were well documented in the minutes which can be found on this site, no objections or concerns were raised to the Parish Council prior to the planning application being approved.

In light of the objection received by NLC, the Parish Council would like the views of resident prior to any further decisions being made.

Please provide any comments to the Clerk by the end of the month.

About the village - Worlabys' name is defined as 'Wulfric's farmstead or village'. Since 1086 when it was known as Uluricebi or Vluricebi in the Doomsday Book it has also been spelt as Wulfrikeby, Wolrickby and Werliby.

The place - Worlaby is a small village located on the western edge of the Wolds near Brigg. The parish church of St Clement was rebuilt in the 1870s by W Scott Champion but its tower dates to the eleventh century. There are also two chapels; the Wesleyn dates from 1858 and the Primitive Methodist from before 1856.

Close to the church is an almshouse known as Worlaby Hospital. Built in 1663 by Lord Belasyse as, it is thought, a thanks offering for his life being spared during the Civil war when as a Royalist he was imprisoned in the Tower.

Legend has it that there was once a teetotal squire of Worlaby that would not allow an inn in the village. Farmworkers were not to be stopped though from the occasional tipple, and brewed their own beer. They stored it in a well and when they wanted a drink they just went down the well.
