Haxey

Haxey Church

Haxey is a village and civil parish located in the district of North Lincolnshire. It is quite small but is accessible enough, with the county town of Lincoln only 35 kilometers away to the south-east. It is situated on a series of low-lying hills.

The village used to be the capital of the Isle of Axholme before parts of it were burned down. As of today, it only forms part of the Isle of Axholme.

The small village has a few amenities and needs such as a primary school, some public houses, convenience stores, estate agencies and many others.

Furthermore, Haxey is known for its landmark known as the Grade I listed Anglican Church dedicated to St. Nicholas. However, it is more famous for its annual traditional tussle known as the “Haxey Hood”, which is presumed to be the oldest living tradition in all of Britain.
