Civil parish Territorial designation and lowest tier of local government in England

In England, a civil parish is a type of administrative parish used for local government, they are a territorial designation which is the lowest tier of local government below districts and counties, or their combined form, the unitary authority. Civil parishes can trace their origin to the ancient system of ecclesiastical parishes which historically played a role in both civil and ecclesiastical administration; civil and religious parishes were formally split into two types in the 19th century and are now entirely separate. The unit was devised and rolled out across England in the 1860s.

Lincolnshire County of England

Lincolnshire is a county in eastern England, with a long coastline on the North Sea to the east. It borders Norfolk to the south east, Cambridgeshire to the south, Rutland to the south west, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire to the west, South Yorkshire to the north west, and the East Riding of Yorkshire to the north. It also borders Northamptonshire in the south for just 20 yards (19 m), England's shortest county boundary. The county town is the city of Lincoln, where the county council has its headquarters.

The area surrounding the existing hamlet is scheduled and includes the earthwork remains of the larger medieval village, which was established before the late 11th century. Documentary evidence for a church first occurs in the mid-12th century. Following the Dissolution in the 16th century, the parish came under the ownership of the Dean of Lincoln, and in the 17th and 18th centuries the village gradually became depopulated. The church, which was dedicated to Saint Mary Magdalen, [4] was demolished early in the 17th century. A war memorial marks the site of the church, located within a rectangular enclosure representing the churchyard, the remains of the church survive as buried building foundations. [5]

A parish is a territorial entity in many Christian denominations, constituting a division within a diocese. A parish is under the pastoral care and clerical jurisdiction of a parish priest, who might be assisted by one or more curates, and who operates from a parish church. Historically, a parish often covered the same geographical area as a manor. Its association with the parish church remains paramount.
