St. Michael's Church

The village of Coningsby, lying with the Wolds on one side and the Fens on the other, is overseen by the impressive tower of St Michael's Church. Its unique one handed clock face, dating from the 17th century, lays claim to be the largest working version of the 'antique one-handed' type still in existence, measuring a massive 16' 6" in diameter.

From Danish settlement to Battle of Britain

This peaceful village, which began life as an early Danish settlement, is also home to another important feature in our country's heritage. It is here that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, formed in 1957 to commemorate the Royal Air Force's major battle honour, is now based; a Lancaster, five Spitfires, two Hurricanes and a Dakota.

R.A.F. Coningsby

These aircraft are not kept in museums, for they are still flying and can be seen at a variety of air-shows in the summer months. Take a trip to RAF Coningsby and see the planes in their hangars where the technicians work on them, it is truly a wonderful sight.
