Welcome to the Nocton Parish Council website

This website contains a wealth of information about Nocton's Parish Council and the village itself.

Nocton is an attractive village containing many traditional stone dwellings with natural clay pantile roofing, set among mature trees and hedging. The village is located approximately 7 miles south-east of Lincoln, off the Lincoln – Sleaford road (B1188) and is one in a line of settlements running in a north south direction along the slope of the Lincoln Heath. Lying between the 15 and 20 metre contours, the land falls to the edge of Nocton Fen to the East and rises up to Nocton Heath in the West.

Much of the village is subject to Conservation Area status, with many Grade II and architecturally-sensitive properties. In the past, the village was closely connected to the large Nocton Estate.

A number of successive owners have left their legacy in the design and layout of the existing buildings – the Grade II listed Nocton Hall and All Saints Church are particularly important structures. The once impressive Nocton Hall has had an interesting and varied history over its lifetime, but is now in a derelict state following a fire in 2004. The nearby All Saints Parish Church is accepted as the finest Gothic Revival church in the whole of Lincolnshire and is a valuable asset in the heart of the village.

The old RAF Nocton Hospital site still lies undeveloped, whereas the original RAF houses on Nocton Park are now in private ownership. Several ‘executive’ homes have been built around the village and in addition, two modern developments by Persimmon Homes and Peter Sowerby Homes provide a diverse choice of property for the discerning buyer.
