Woodhall Spa’s Cottage Museum may seem small, but it is one of Lincolnshire’s finest, having literally risen like a Phoenix from the flames since an arson attack in 2011. It was originally “…..the vision of one man, John Wield, over a hundred years ago. He foresaw that one-day people would ask about the origins of the then young Victorian spa community and so set about recording what he could for the future. John had a fascination with the art of photography, one of his many interests, and it is his photographic collection, which forms the basis for today’s Cottage Museum.”
But as well as capturing the village’s fascinating past, the museum hosts a range of special events throughout the summer. Here’s the August programme:
August 3 at 10:00 am to 12:00 pm: Creative Clay – Fantasy Creatures. This is another of our fun-filled children’s event. Come and have fun with different modelling materials. The event is only £3.00 per child and this covers all the materials. Continue reading →

A group of gardens and nurseries, all with regular public opening times, have joined together in order to offer a range of additional services to the public. These include not only a collection of the most exciting gardens that may be visited anywhere in Lincolnshire or Eastern England, but information on visiting the county of Lincolnshire as well. The nearest to Woodhall Spa are:
Only weeks away now for that weekend when Woodhall Spa once again rolls out the time machine and sets the dial to the1940s. This year the festival is scheduled for the third weekend in July – 15 / 16th, so if you enjoy flypasts, parades, period costumes, big band music and the like, all to be found in one of the most attractive villages in Lincolnshire, then you know where to be that weekend.
The latest twist in the story of the stolen logbook is that Shere Fraser Lowe, the daughter of its owner Sgt John Fraser, has offered a £5,000 reward for information leading to its return. It was loaned to researcher Alex Bateman by the Fraser family for his work. Bateman was jailed for two years in February this year for theft after failing to return it. Shere explained: “Some people say it’s just a document, a piece of paper, but that’s not what it is to me – it’s priceless. Because I lost him at a very young age – I value every little piece – so to get it back would be like getting a piece of my father back.”
