Torksey is a small village in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 875. It is situated on the A156 road, 7mi south of Gainsborough and 9mi north-west of the city of Lincoln, and on the eastern bank of the tidal River Trent, which here forms the boundary with Nottinghamshire.It is notable historically as the site of a Roman canal, a major Viking camp, the late medieval Torksey Castle and a Victorian railway bridge, Torksey Viaduct.HistoryFoss Dyke, a Roman canal constructed in or about the 2nd Century, joins the River Trent by way of a series of lock-gates about half a mile (800 m) south of the village.During the 9th Century, Torksey was part of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Lindsey. In the late 860s, a Viking invasion force known to the English as the "Great Heathen Army" conquered eastern England. In 871–2, the Vikings established a winter camp in London, but returned to Northumbria soon afterwards, following a rebellion against their rule. During 872–3, the Great Heathen Army established its winter quarters at Torksey.
