Hob Uid: 354231
Location :
Lincolnshire
East Lindsey
Walmsgate, South Ormsby cum Ketsby
Grid Ref : TF3612077510
Summary : Probable Medieval settlement (tofts, crofts, pond and hollow way) seen as cropmarks and earthworks. Ruined Medieval church.
More information : [TF 3620 7744] Church [GT] (Remains of). (1)

The lost village of Walmsgate is mentioned in 1377, when 30 paid toll tax. A priest was last instituted about 1435, and 8 families remained in 1563. The small church was still standing in the early 17th century. Air photographs show traces of earthworks at area
TF 36047757. Scheduled. (2-5)

The walls of the church still stand to a maximum height of 1.8m and are covered in a dense growth of ivy.
The village street is a pronounced hollow way with steadings terraced into the steep north face. Earthworks only surveyed at 1:2500.
An extensive Md. field system lies to the north of the village.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (6)

Exploration of burial ground in 1901 produced Romano-British and Medieval pottery, window glass, iron key, chalices and paten. (7)

The Medieval settlement referred to by the previous authorities was
seen as earthworks and mapped from good quality air photographs.
Much of the remains have been ploughed and are now visible as
cropmarks. The hollow way referred to by authority 6 extends west
from TF 3640 7735, for 350m, to Manor Farm, it then continues
beyond the Farm for a further 500m to Low Farm, TF 3561 7780.
Flanking this hollow way are the fragmentary remains of tofts with
crofts behind, these include the earthworks referred to by
authorities 2-5 as being around the church and the steading
referred to by authority 6. A pond, 30m by 20m, is visible centred
at TF 3625 7743. (Morph No. LI.84.2.1-10)
