Geography West Lindsey borders North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire to the north, East Lindsey to the east, North Kesteven and the city of Lincoln to the south, and the county of Nottinghamshire to the west. It covers Gainsborough (Gainsborough, Lincolnshire), Market Rasen, Sudbrooke, Cherry Willingham, Nettleham, Welton (Welton, Lincolnshire), Caistor and Keelby. The boundary of the district in the west borders the River Trent, and meets Nottinghamshire (Bassetlaw) and North Lincolnshire at East Stockwith, close to Wildsworth. On the other side of the Trent is Gunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. It deviates from the Trent, to the east along the River Eau at Scotter, where it meets Messingham in North Lincolnshire. The boundary deviates southwards near Scotton (Scotton, Lincolnshire), then at Northorpe (Northorpe, West Lindsey) follows the B1205 eastwards, crossing the A15 at Waddingham. It follows the Sallowrow Drain to the Old River Ancholme at South Kelsey, which it follows northwards. At North Kelsey, it deviates from the Old River Ancholme, following the North Kelsey Beack eastwards. This crosses the B1434 then the Newark-Grimsby railway line, where at Searby cum Owmby it follows a drain parallel to the railway line northwards, and at Bigby (Bigby, Lincolnshire) it follows Kettleby Beck westwards across the railway line back to the Old River Ancholme, which it follows for almost a mile towards Brigg. The Bigby parish is the northern part of West Lindsey that skirts the southern edge of Brigg, crossing the A1084 and the railway line (Sheffield to Lincoln Line). Also in Bigby, it crosses the Scunthorpe-Grimsby line, then three railway lines together at Wrawby Junction. North of Bigby village it crosses the western escarpment of the northern Lincolnshire Wolds, then skirts the southern and eastern perimenter of Humberside Airport. It crosses the A18 and B1210 (B1210 road), then the B1211. The furthest north section of the district, and of the county, is where it meets a short section of the A180 (A180 road (England)), where a few hundred metres west of the A160 (A160 road) interchange it meets North East Lincolnshire. It follows the New Beck Drain south-east across the B1210, and at Riby, the A1173 and A18. At Swallow (Swallow, Lincolnshire) it crosses the A46 (A46 road). It follows the Waithe Beck at Thorganby (Thorganby, Lincolnshire). At Swinhope it meets East Lindsey, next to Scallows Hall (in East Lindsey), and crosses the B1203, then again at Kirmond le Mire. It meets the B1225 ''High Street'' at Tealby, and for around two miles southwards is the district boundary, crossing the A631 (A631 road) at North Willingham. At Sixhills it deviates westwards from the B1225, next to the former RAF Ludford Magna (in East Lindsey). At Holton cum Beckering it crosses the B1202, then the A158 (A158 road) at Goltho, where it skirts the western edge of Wragby (in East Lindsey). It passes southwards in Bardney through Chamber's Farm Wood (mostly in East Lindsey); Chamber's Farm itself is in West Lindsey. It skirts the southern edge of the former RAF Bardney, and crosses the B1190 near Tupholme Abbey (in East Lindsey). East of Southrey (also in Bardney parish) it meets the River Witham and North Kesteven. It follows the River Witham westwards until Greetwell (Greetwell, West Lindsey) where it meets the City of Lincoln, deviates northwards, crossing the Lincoln - Market Rasen railway line. It follows the outskirts of Lincoln, crossing the B1182 (former A46) at Nettleham. It crosses the A15 north of the Riseholme roundabout, and follows a short section of the A57 (A57 road), then crosses it, near Bishop Bridge. A few hundred metres west it meets the Foss Dyke, which from there a mile north-west is the boundary with North Kesteven. At Saxilby with Ingleby (Saxilby) it deviates westwards from the Foss Dyke, and at Broadholme (former Nottinghamshire until 1989) at the B1190 (''Tom Otters Lane''), it meets Nottinghamshire (Newark and Sherwood). It follows a half-mile section of Ox Pasture Drain north to the A57, which it briefly follows westwards until Kettlethorpe (Kettlethorpe, Lincolnshire) (A156 (A156 road) junction). It crosses the A1133 at Newton on Trent, and under a mile westwards it meets the River Trent and Bassetlaw, a mile north of the former High Marnham Power Station. Education The district, similar to North and South Kesteven, has a mixture of comprehensive schools in the south-east of the district and selective schools in Gainsborough (Queen Elizabeth's High School, The Gainsborough Academy) and Caistor. Both grammar schools are in the top ten for A level (Advanced Level (UK)) results in the East Midlands, with Caistor Grammar School getting the best results in this region consistently year on year. It also gets some of the best results in England. These schools offer a standard of state education from ages 11–16 not available in the regions of Lincolnshire directly north of the district (former Lindsey (Lindsey (government district)) before 1974). Pupils from outside of the district may travel to be educated in Gainsborough from Scunthorpe (12–15 miles via the A159 (A159 road)), and (in greater number) to Caistor from Grimsby and Cleethorpes (10–12 miles via the A46 (A46 road)). The situation is reversed in the sixth form with Lincolnshire pupils studying at the John Leggott College in Scunthorpe and the Franklin College, Grimsby. The best comprehensive in this district (and the county) is the William Farr School in Welton, which gets A level results similar to a grammar school (Grammar schools in the United Kingdom). Transport Large parts of the district can be accessed from the M180 (M180 motorway), to the north of the region. The A1500 (''Tillbridge Lane'') and A631 (A631 road) are the main east-west routes, and avoid busy town centres. The A631, further west, allows passage (through Bassetlaw) to Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield in the nearby Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster. The north-south route is the A15 (A15 road (England)), officially the straightest road in the UK, following the Roman road Ermine Street. Tourism Attractions to the district include the Lincolnshire Wolds. The Lincolnshire Show is held in the district at the Lincolnshire Showground, south of RAF Scampton, which is also the home for the Red Arrows, officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. Demographics The district ranked 161 out of 354 local authorities for amounts of deprivation.
