The Village of Tallington in Lincolnshire
On the A16, midway between Stamford and Market Deeping and
on the East Coast Main Line between Grantham & Peterborough, and well known for its notorious level crossing!
The Tallington Information website is owned and edited by Ken Otter, a village resident and a member of a family that can trace its lineage back to the mid 1600’s in Tallington. It has over 120 pages which are live and updated regularly. More graphics and photographs will be introduced as required to give you a more in-depth view of our village.
This website was updated on the 8th February 2013
As this website was highly critical of the previous Parish Council’s actions nothing was written for 18 months to allow the new Parish Council time to settle and deal with many outstanding issues. Now that I am no longer a Parish Councillor, the time has come to resurrect a watching brief, as various issues seem once again to be in need of comment.
Please use the Level Crossing links alongside or click here to see the Latest News and then consider which is best for Tallington.
Thank you. Ken Otter
The 'What's On' page usually has the current list of events,

CALLCONNECT & CALLCONNECT PLUS
Lincolnshire County Council has announced a bus service "CallConnect," serving Bourne and the surrounding villages (including the five mentioned above and now "CallConnect PLUS" for Uffington or Tallington!).
The service operates Monday to Saturday (07:00 to 19:00) in response to pre-booked requests (on a "dial-a-bus" basis), and will pick up and set down at designated locations in the villages and towns served (including providing access to Bourne and Market Deeping, and NOW Stamford). CallConnect does not usually operate on routes where local bus services are already in operation except at times when there are no buses.
Anyone can use the service for any purpose (eg shopping, medical appointments, work, training etc). Users need first to register details with the Booking Centre (by phone or internet), after which journeys can be booked, again with the Booking Centre. Bookings are subject to availability (on a first come first served basis) and can be booked up to seven days in advance; same day bookings need at least two hours notice.
Tickets are purchased from the driver, and fares vary depending on the length of journey. Concessionary bus passes (available to those over 60 and to disabled people) are valid on all CallConnect services, giving free travel to the pass holder after 09:30 on Mondays to Fridays and all day on Saturdays.
The Booking Centre (0845 234 3344 - local call rate) is open Monday to Friday (08:30 to 17:00) and Saturday (09:00 to 15:00); bookings may also be made at anytime via the website www.lincsinterconnect.com
