About Belchford

Belchford is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated approximately 4 miles (6 km) north of Horncastle and just to the east of the A153. At the 2011 Census, the population of the parish was 255.

Steep hills and deep valleys surround the village. Belchford lies in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty running from Louth in the north, to Horncastle in the south. The village attracts ramblers, and hang-gliders who use the ridges from the Bluestone Heath Road to launch into the valley.

The Viking Way, a national long distance footpath, passes through Belchford by the Blue Bell Inn, on its way from the Humber in the north to Rutland in the south.
