Fulletby, Guidepost

This is one of Fulletby’s two traditional Lindsey County Council guideposts.
 
The upright is cast reinforced concrete and is pyramidal topped, chamfered and mortised for the wooden arms just as the original timber ones were.
 
After a campaign lasting many years the regional designs of those which remain in Lindsey, Holland and Kesteven have been respected by the county highways authority and the signs are being considered for local listing.
 
This guidepost stands at the junction of High Street with the Belchford to Greetham road at a high point overlooking Tetford and Salmonby to the east.
 
The near horizon behind the sign is Hoe Hill, often mistaken for a long barrow, but really a stratum of roachstone that has resisted erosion.

This is the second of Fulletby’s two traditional Lindsey County Council guideposts.
 
The upright is cast reinforced concrete and is pyramidal topped, chamfered and mortised for the wooden arms just as the original timber ones were.
 
This guidepost stands where the road from Horncastle and Low Toynton arrives from the south and is so loved that it was chosen to be depicted in one of the village’s ornamental signs.

This cottage is now the only remaining mud and stud building in the village, although cased in brickwork.
 
It may be one of the ‘Parish Houses’ as the line of buildings shown occupy the site where three formerly stood. It is listed Grade II.

Fulletby school appears to have started in 1849 but the provision of a schoolteacher’s house took another ten years.

 The plans dated 1858 were drawn up by Anthony Bellamy [was this as in Bellamy & Hardy of Lincoln – right date?] and the building is dated in the southern gable end at 1859.

St Andrew’s largely dates from the restoration by (Joseph) Maughan and (James) Fowler in 1857.

Nave and chancel have lancet widows throughout, and there is a bell-cote at the west end.

Inside is a restored 14th century sedilia.

Kelly's Directory of Lincolnshire 1919 states :-

"The church of St. Andrew is a building of green sandstone, in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, vestry, south porch and a bell-cot containing 2 bells:

the chancel retains sedilia, and two of its windows are stained:

there is also a stained window in the nave:

the church was rebuilt in 1705, and again restored in 1857, under the direction of Messrs. Maughan and Fowler, of Louth, when the chancel and porch were rebuilt and the whole structure new roofed and reseated:

the original building was a very plain edifice with aisles, and a western tower in which were 5 bells, but the tower was taken down in 1799:

there are 120 sittings"

John Frewer was born and baptised in Fulletby in 1883. He was the son of Canon G. E. Frewer who was then Rector of Fulletby.

A member of the Brotherhood of St Boniface, he was their warden from 1919 until his ordination to the episcopate.

He served as second bishop of North West Australia from 1929 to 1965"

The village of Fulletby claims to be the second highest in Lincolnshire (the highest being incontrovertibly Normanby le Wold, 4 miles north of Market Rasen).
 
Properties are mainly built on a north-facing slope at between 425 and 450 feet.
 
The water tower at Fulletby is located immediately to the east of the Village, positioned in a stand of trees at Top Holt alongside the cliff-top road between Belchford and Greetham.
 
The tower is part of the public water supply network operated by Anglian Water Services serving this rural area of East Lindsey. It was constructed in 1972 by the former East Lincolnshire Water Board to improve public drinking water supplies to the local area by providing elevated and emergency storage.
 
Water is supplied to the tower from a pumping station at Raithby, near Louth. It is of good quality but with high levels of hardness. 

The tower supplies water to Tetford, Somersby, Hagworthingham, Greetham as well as Fulletby itself.
 
The village is also a prime site for telecommunications masts, several of which are attached to the top of the water tower.

Henry Winn (1816-1914) was a remarkable resident of Fulletby.
Like many of his contemporaries he enjoyed few years of formal education but was interested in many subjects, researching and writing throughout his life.
 
He was a poet and antiquary, parish clerk for over 75 years, paper-hanger, cobbler and shopkeeper.
 
This was the home he shared with his wife Maria. It is still called ‘Winn Cottage’.
 
The door on the left was the entrance to the village shop that he ran.

At the roadside end of the house was the grocer’s and draper’s shop established by Henry Winn. From his chair he had a view across to the church and the school, and at the shop desk he did most of his writing.
 
He also took his goods around neighbouring villages by horse and trap. A popular poet, he had his verses printed on the tea-wrappers he used.
