The Dying Gladiator
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
the unlikely name of the Dying Gladiator. Above the Doric arch is a
full size figure of the gladiator.
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.
