Appleby is a small picturesque village in North Lincolnshire, rich in history and agricultural tradition, boasting a beautiful Church and stunning village architecture including 18th century stone cottages, distinctive brick and stone Estate Cottages from the 19th century and the locally renowned Thatched Cottage! Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the village does not have any shops or public houses, but does boast a thriving community.

The Thatched Cottage on Paul Lane, along with other similar designed cottages (but with pantile roofs) were built around 1710.

The attractive ‘Estate Cottages’, to be found on many of the village lanes, were built in the 1880′s.

Appleby is skirted to the east by the River Ancholme, a tributary of the River Humber, running from Bishopbridge through Brigg before flowing North into the Humber at South Ferriby. The village is approximately a mile from the Ancholme across a stretch of agricultural land known as Appleby Carrs. The impressive structure in the photo below is Saxby Bridge.

The population of the parish as reported in the 2001 census returns was 597, residing in the 180 or so properties within the village and within the additional properties in the hamlets of Low Risby, High Risby, Santon and Raventhorpe.
