The End of the World in Lincolnshire !

The End of the World in Lincolnshire !
It’s long been said that the end of the world is nigh and yet we’re still here . . . phew!
All that said, The Worlds End is, in fact, in Lincolnshire . . . but where and what’s it all about ?!

Twas whilst perusing images of the truly wonderful 1828 Bryant map of Lincolnshire for items of interest that I came across . . . The Worlds End :shock:
X marks the spot and sorry the map isn’t as clear as I’d hope for . . .

Lincolnshire world's end

The End of the World

We all know that the top end of Lincolnshire is as far North as it’s safe to go and beyond The Humber Bridge Be Monsters ! So it should come as no surprise to know that the same must apply to the East.
Be that as it may I wasn’t aware that the World’s End was near Tetney :)

It’s not far from something we’ve looked at previously Tetney Castles and a few other interesting spots seem to be marked on the Bryant Map.

Everybody writes to me and says they love these threads so let’s have a look into this one.
They’re not all going to be epic and exciting but I really hope they’ll ferret out all sorts of interesting and related snippets as they have done in the past.

So, what can we find out about Worlds End in Lincolnshire ?

All the best

    53°30′13.80″N 0° 2′45.52″E is the area where World’s End used to be. Now the site of farm buildings.

    And I thought it was my bleary old eyes deceiving me when I almost misread “Cowskit Bank” ! Mind you, it is converging with “Sewer Lane:roll:

    Don’t you just love map-orgies?!

    Excellent - but don’t take on step further :)
