Dogdyke is a small hamlet located in the district of East Lindsey. Though it is small, it is accessible, with Tattershall located only 3 kilometers away to the north. The hamlet is also near the Rivers Bain and Witham, as well as the real River Slea.

It is said that long ago, a chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas, which is presumed to be from the 14th century and was mentioned in 1342, once existed in this small hamlet. However, the said chapel vanished and no traces of it can be found in the hamlet.

Moreover, the hamlet was once written in history due to it being the place where the first drainage pump, which is wind-powered, was invented in 1796.

As of the present, the hamlet has a few basic amenities with an addition of two public houses, a caravan park, and a marina.

However, what makes the hamlet most famous is the story of the Werewolf of Dogdyke, which involved a young archaeologist in the year 1926.
