Canwick Village

Overview

Canwick Village Character Area is a small village located on the south escarpment overlooking the Witham Valley and with views to Lincoln to the north. 
 
Although the Character Area retains aspects of almost 2000 years of traceable history, Canwick draws much of its character from development during the last 250 years, with most of the village being founded around several 18th and 19th century properties.
 
Although much of the village comprises modern development, the village maintains an antiquated character, with several 18th and 19th century buildings, dispersed throughout the area. The mixture of ‘old and new’ is homogenised by the large numbers of mature trees which give all areas a sense of age and enclosure.
 
The character of Canwick is heavily influenced by Canwick Hall, its ancillary buildings, boundary walls and grounds in the northeast of the Character Area. The development of the village has formed relatively organically as an estate village.  A programme of tree planting, by the Sibthorps, around the village is still a defining characteristic of the area.
