The entry in Whites directory of Lincolnshire 1842, describes Sedgebrook as a pleasant village near the confluence of two rivulets, 4 miles WNW of Grantham – and thankfully it remains so today.
Sedgebrook, or to give it its Domesday Book entry, Schebroc, apparently played host to Iron Age settlements and was influenced by strong Abbey connections. Abbey House, Abbey Lane and Abbey Farm all remain as testimony to the legacy left from those early days.
As you enter Sedgebrook village past the Old Primary and Grammar Schools, sadly closed in 1984 due to falling numbers, you are greeted by the Village Green, proudly housing the Chestnut Tree commemorating George V Silver Jubilee. As you continue on, the magnificent St Lawrence Church is ahead in all its glory, built of Golden Ironstone with the original North Arcade dating back to the 12th Century. The Church as it is today was completed in 1863, however, as part of the millennium celebrations it was decided to provide illuminations, which is switched on for special occasions and enables the Church to be seen for miles across the Vale of Belvoir.
Within the Parish we can boast of a thriving community spirit with such organisations as Parochial Church Council, Social Club and Parish Council – all meeting on a regular basis.
The population of Sedgebrook has risen from first records in 1842 indicating 250 to a healthy adult population of 288 as of the last census.
