Tealby is a picturesque and friendly village in an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty on the gentle slopes of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The Viking way - a long distance, historic walking route - passes through Tealby, and there are many delightful local walks, starting and ending in Tealby. See more information on our Walks page.


Tealby has a rich history that can be seen in its buildings, 31 of which are listed. It is thought that it was first settled in the 5th Century by East Germanic Taifali tribal people. The Viking army settled in the village in the 9th Century and Viking connections can still be seen in old Danish names such as Teal-by itself, the ‘by’ meaning farmstead or village, ‘Thorpe’ meaning a secondary settlement, ‘Beck’ meaning stream, and ‘Smooting’ – a narrow passage between houses.


All Saints Church dates from the 12th Century with Norman origins. The Church is built of orange-brown Tealby ironstone, the oldest parts being the west doorway and the lower part of the tower. There are many interesting features, including the memorials to the Tennyson family.
The Tennyson d’Eyncourt Memorial Hall was built in the 1930s and is used for social functions and is a venue for stage and musical performances. Tickets are available from the Tealby Shop. Click here to see the Hall event diary and see details of pending performances on tealbyvillage.com.


Tealby School was founded in 1856 by Charles Tennyson d’Eyncourt, the uncle of Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson who visited the village in his youth.


Bayons Manor was a 60-room gothic mansion, built in the 1830s by Charles Tennyson d’Eyncourt. Tragically it fell into disrepair after the war and was demolished in 1964. See more information here.
