Heckington is one of the largest villages in Lincolnshire. There are over 1500 households in Heckington.

The nearly thousand years old village (first mentioned in the 10th century) is best known for its windmill of the same name, the only 8-sailed example of its type still standing in the UK and all Europe.

Heckington windmill

The tower windmill built as a five-sailed mill in 1830 and turned into an eight-sailed mill after serious storm damages in 1890/1892 was formerly (and sometimes still today) named Pocklington’s Mill after her last owner John Pocklington. It has undergone two major refurbishments in 1986 and in 2004 and is open to the public.

The old St. Andrew’s church has a variety of original stained glass windows, one of which depicting the construction of the building itself. It was built during the 14th century.

The Heckington Show is held annually in the village over the last weekend in July since 1864. The village has a 900-year-tradition of holding festive weekends.
