Welcome to Harmston Parish website

Harmston is a picturesque village lying 6 miles south of Lincoln and on the A607 road to Grantham.

Harmston is one of a number of villages spaced at regular intervals that grew up on an escarpment from which there are dramatic views of the Witham valley.

The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086, when it was recorded as an agricultural area dominated by farms. In those days, farms were referred to as "tofts" and relics relating to those times can be seen in the Chapel Lane area of the village.
Harmston's Manor House was built in the 18th-century for Sir Charles Thorold. Harmston Hall, was completed in 1710 and was also the home of Sir George Thorold who became Lord Mayor of London in 1719. Later, in the 20th-century the hall became a hospital, and more latterly it was developed back into a private home. 

There is a small parish church dedicated to All Saints, and a village pub.
