St Margarets

The church of St Margaret in Somersby is a small and inviting Grade II listed building closely associated with Alfred Tennyson and his family.


Alfred Lord Tennyson, Queen Victoria’s Poet Laureate was born on August the 6th 1809, at what is now Somersby House but was then the Rectory.


Nestled in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies Somersby, a small hamlet of around 15 dwellings.
