Brigg - Where to go and how to get there

Brigg market place

Brigg railway station with its Saturday only trains that olperate between Sheffield and Cleethorpes, is a short walk from Wrawby Street, the main shopping street, which leads to the Marketplace. Brigg is a small market town at an ancient crossing place on the River Ancholme. Most of the buildings in the town centre at 18th and 19th century. Famed for its annual fair, between 1896 and 2019 the town was widely known for its annual acoustic music festival, Briggstock

Brigg Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre is located in a mock Tudor Victorian building  formerly the Angel Hotel.

The centrepiece of the Gallery is a Bronze Age Sewn Plank Boat or “Brigg Raft” as it is more commonly known. One of only two on display in the country, you can see how this amazing 3,000 year old ancient relic was made, what it was used for and where it was found.  It is a national treasure and not to be missed.

Brigg Market

Brigg has an extensive variety of independent local shops supplemented on Thursdays by its market. For rail travellerts a Farmers Market is help on the fourth Saturday of the month.

The Dying Gladiator

Among the pubs and inns of Brigg the one with the most extraordinary exterior is the Dying Gladiator in Bigby Street where you will find an 18th century pub, very much centred on  the traditional function of drinking rather than  the modern trend of becoming a restaurant as well, with the unlikely name of the Dying Gladiator. Above the Doric arch is a full size figure of the gladiator.

Wrawby Windmill

A mile out of town stands Wrawby Postmill high on a hill and on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and overlooking the Ancholme valley and Brigg. The post mill is an example of an early type of windmill that was once common across the UK. There are now less than 45 surviving examples with even fewer being fully operational. Bus X4 or North Lincolnshire Council's Just Go demand responsive bus will enable you to reach the windmill.
