Metheringham, Meg as it is known to locals, is a village 9 miles to the south east of Lincoln and 10 Miles north of Sleaford. With a village hall, summer fetes and Christmas fairs being held annually, there really is a great sense of community, an ideal place to raise a family.
Whilst keeping a village feel, Metheringham has a lot to offer, several takeaways, two pubs, a restaurant (the Indian is a must on a Thursday night with booking advised apparently), convenience store, post office, day nursery, lovely primary school, oh and a train station too with regular services to Lincoln and Sleaford!
