Utterby Village

Utterby is a small village in the East Lindsey District of Lincolnshire England. It is situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds in an area of outstanding natural beauty and straddles the A16 road, It is 10 miles south of Grimsby and 4 miles north from Louth. Near to the Village is the site of a former Gilbertine Priory. It is believed that the monks of this priory built the villages’ Packhorse Bridge in the 14th century to give them access to the church. There is evidence that the bridge was used by Salt Drovers carrying salt from the coastal strip to trade with it inland.


The Name Utterby is Danish and the village is thought to date from about 900AD. In common with so many villages, the shop closed some years ago. However, the assets include a vibrant village school for 50+ pupils, a Parish Room by the village green, some historic houses, St Andrews 13th Century Church and a notable 14th Century Packhorse Bridge
