West Torrington is a small hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, It is situated on the edge of Bleasby Moor and 3 miles north from Wragby and 5 miles from Market Rasen. The cathedral city and county capital of Lincoln is situated only approximately 12 miles away.
Market Rasen is a small historic Market Town which boasts bustling streets, local shops selling local produce, friendly pubs and stunning surrounding countryside. Facilities are excellent and besides the thriving shopping centre there's a police station, fire and ambulance stations, railway station, excellent schooling, doctor's surgery, good access to NHS dentists and a library.
On top of all that, there's a racecourse the only one in Lincolnshire and a golf course, and a fair number of new residential developments which have brought in new residents to this pleasant corner of Lincolnshire. This bustling town has become increasingly popular with commuters, not only because of its easy road access but also because of its rail links to Grimsby & Lincoln which now has direct trains to London. Equally, because it's one of the western gateways to the Lincolnshire Wolds, you don't need to go far to find quiet roads, pleasant footpaths and beautiful countryside.
