Welcome to the Southrey Village History website constructed in conjunction with members of the Bardney Heritage Group.

Southrey is a small village situated on the banks of the River Witham within the parish of Bardney.  Although a part of the larger community of Bardney, Southrey has its own rich history dating back to before the Domesday Book.  On this site we aim to capture electronically some of this history.  In doing so we recognise the work already undertaken by the late Marjorie Woodcock on the history of the village for her book: “Southrey: Not the Back of Beyond” (1998). We hope that the history presented here will add to and enrich her dedicated efforts.

Southrey Village History is open to all to contribute information, images, written articles and constructive criticism.  See ‘Contact Us’ for details.

We will endeavour to ensure that the information provided on this site is accurate, well-sourced and verifiable.  Please let us know if you believe we have erred.

We hope you enjoy!
