Wrawby is situated on the hilly edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, a few miles east of Brigg on the A18, in the unitary authority (ie county) of North Lincolnshire. Its two best-known landmarks are the Church of St Mary and the Post Mill.
Wrawby is mentioned in the Domesday Book and its name is one of the many in this part of England derived from old Danish. People have lived and farmed here for much longer than that however, and the Local History Group, with the assistance of Scunthorpe Museum and specialist archaeologists, have uncovered evidence of an Iron Age enclosure and Romano-British farm buildings. For more information see the Local History Group Page.
The present population of Wrawby is around 1,500 in about 600 homes. Wrawby has a Church of England Primary School, also called St Mary’s, a garage, two pubs and a farm shop selling eggs and vegetables.
