This village, township and parish are 10 miles northeast of Sleaford, on the A153 trunk road. Timberland parish is to the north, and Digby parish to the west. The parish covers about 3,670 acres.
Walcot, often spelled Walcott, is a hamlet (and township) in Billinghay parish, northwest of Billinghay village. Dogdyke is a township in the parish, but most of the township is now a separate parish. If you are planning a visit:
A small stream, called the Skirth, divides North Kyme from Billinghay and passes through the parish.
Parts of the Skirth are navigable, but much of it is just a drainage canal. Richard CROFT catured a Narrowboat on the Skirth on Geo-graph, taken in 2008.
Here's a newspaper clipping mentioning the village. Unfortunately, the newspspaer's name is lost, but the date is 13 Oct. 1917: Diane Maltby
MILITARY MEDALLIST.- We are pleased to announce that Lce.-Corpl. Atkin, of the Leinsters, has come home on ten days' leave from France after winning the Military Medal for gallantry and devotion to duty. He is in the best of health and spirits, although he has endured some very hard times in the trenches. He has been out in France for eleven months, and has the distinction of being the first Billinghay boy to win honours.
ON LEAVE.- Lieut. W. Cullen has been visiting Billinghay on leave from France. -Pte. Albert Atkin, who some time ago was seriously wounded, has been home for a few days' leave from Hospital in Scotland.
WESLEYAN CHAPEL.- On Sunday week the harvest thanksgiving services were held in connection with the above church. Eloquent sermons were preached by the Rev. Bishop, of Sleaford. The chapel had been tastefully decorated for the occasion with flowers, fruit, etc. Mrs. Goodman (North Kyme) presided at the organ. On Thursday evening the Rev. Lee (Metheringham) preached. The fruit, vegetables, etc., were afterwards sold by Mr. William Ravell.
And from 27 Oct. 1917: Diane Maltby
ROAD ACCIDENT.- On Monday, Samuel Gibson, of Ropsley, was found lying in an unconscious condition on the main road, near Tattershall Bridge, a pony and cart being close by. No one knew how he came there, and it is supposed that the pony ran away, the man falling off the trap and being run over. Inspector Taylor had him brought to Sleaford Infirmary.
DEATH.- We regret to announce the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Porter Atchinson, who during the last few years had resided with her daughter in Nottingham. The deceased, who was in her 85th year, was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Frances Gilbert, seed merchants of this village.
