Heighington lies about five miles by road from the centre of the old Roman city of Lincoln. The population of the village was just under three thousand at the 2001 census. This is almost double the size of twenty years ago, as four new private estates of houses and bungalows have been built on the fields and allotments that once flourished within the village

The attractive golden limestone houses of the old village cluster around the junction of the two roads and along the one that goes, by the village beck, down to the fen. The village lies within a shallow valley, that runs from west to east from the higher limestone land down to the fertile fen land, with the beck running just a house and garden's width away from Fen Road. Just 200 yards upstream from the main High Street lies the water-mill that for centuries, until the 1970s ground the corn produced by the local farmers.

The village has a primary school and an Anglican church. Other amenities include two pubs, a mini-supermarket, two hairdressers a beauty parlour. Not so obvious, to the casual visitor, is the further forty businesses that are flourishing which include farm shops, taxi services, plumbers, printers,electricians and painters. The village has two village halls used for both the educational and recreational needs of the population. Over twenty groups use the two halls each month. Other groups use the Heritage Centre rooms.

There is a regular bus service into the city. For the more energetic there is a very well maintained cycle track along the Witham bank giving easy access into the city or to the surrounding countryside. If you are interested in learning more about the village a book that may be of interest to residents and visitors is: " A Brief Account of the History of Heighington and Washingborough. £6 inc postage and packing.
