Careby, Aunby and Holywell residents:

Please would anyone with a little bit of spare time and would enjoy becoming more involved in our community contact the  Chairman Clive Disdale on; or Dick Turpin on,

Careby with Aunby and Holywell is a rural parish of about 150 people, with around 60 households, living in the three hamlets in the beautiful South Lincolnshire countryside about 6 miles north of the market town of Stamford.

The parish has existed for hundreds of years as a farming community and its properties are largely built from locally quarried limestone.
It is believed that Careby was given its name by the Danes who had a settlement alongside the River Glen 1000 years ago.
It is a parish of valleys, rivers and woodland and is divided by the East Coast mainline railway linking London to Edinburgh and the north-east of England.
It has a lovely old church, St Stephens, that dates back to the 13th century, and a pub, the Willoughby Arms, which was built in 1853 as booking office and waiting room for the private railway which in those days was owned by Lord Willoughby of Grimsthorpe.
