"Batemans was founded in 1874 by George Bateman, a local farmer who sold his farm in nearby Friskney in order to rent a brewery in Wainfleet, situated by the railway ...

In 1880 Bateman had earned enough from the business to buy Salem House, a Georgian building some 200 yards from the original brewery, and a new brewery was built in its coach houses. In addition to the brewing, Bateman bottled spirits, and his wife baked bread for sale ...

By 1910 the company was engaged in the bottling of Guinness and Bass for its estate.

Bateman's son, Harry, went into the business, which he bought from his father in 1919.

The 1920s and 1930s proved to be a very lean time for the industry, partly because of severe restrictions on brewing that had come in during World War I, partly because of higher taxes, and a consequent decrease in sales.

At one point Bateman had to lay off his entire workforce, but their resulting plight made him take them back; in order to find work for them, he expanded the business into building opposite Salem House — including a derelict windmill which was to become the brewery's trademark"

The name "Victory Ale" is a reference to the company retaining its independence.

"During the 1980s the company faced a difficult decision: half of the family wanted to sell up and half wanted to continue brewing.

Chairman George Bateman, his wife Pat and their children Stuart and Jaclyn saved up enough money to buy out the family members who wanted to sell, and the company lived on"

Type 1 boxes were built of brick or timber, the last brick examples dating to the 1890s.

The signal box at Wainfleet, which appears to be substantially unaltered, was built in 1899 and retains its original Railway Signal Co lever frame.

The wheel mechanism for raising the crossing gates, originally located between the lever frame and the entrance to the operations room, has been removed"

Wainfleet was the birthplace of William Waynflete, who became Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor of England in the 15th century.

Wainfleet School was founded in 1484 by Waynflete as a feeder school for his other foundation, Magdalen College Oxford.

This fine red brick building was in continual use as a school until the 1980s; it now houses the local museum and library.
