Saltfleetby Nature Reserve


Saltfleetby is a village and Civil parish in the county of Lincolnshire, situated approximately 7 miles east of Louth, 10 miles north of Mablethorpe and on the coast of the North Sea, with a population of 599 at the 2001 Census.

The village is fortunate in that its amenities include The Prussian Queen public house, a shop, animal feed merchant, a primary school, and fishing lakes with campsite. There are football pitches which are well used by Louth Town FC.

A section of the village seashore is part of the Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve, which comprises sea dunes and both saltwater and freshwater marshes. The reserve is one of only five locations in the UK where the natterjack toad can be found.

Until 1999 the village legally comprised three parishes, Saltfleetby St. Peter, Saltfleetby All Saints and Saltfleetby St. Clement, each one centered on the church that gave it its name. However, the village has operated as one entity for many years.

The village is known locally as Soloby.
