Things to do: breweries
Wainfleet All Saints is an ancient port and market town on the east coast of the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A52 road, geographically 5mi south-west from Skegness and 14mi north-east from Boston. It stands on the small rivers Steeping and Limb that form Wainfleet Haven. The town is close to the Lincolnshire Wolds. The village of Wainfleet St Mary is directly to the south.History and landmarksThe name "Wainfleet" is derived from Wegn fleot, a stream that can be crossed by a wagon. The town stands on or near the former Roman settlement of Vainono. Two tumuli, one to the north and one to the south of the town, are of unknown origin, although it has been suggested that they could be Viking or Roman. A number of coins from the period have been found in the vicinity. In Domesday, Wainfleet is referred to as 'Wenflet'.The parish church of All Saints was built in 1820-21 following the demolition of a previous medieval church of the same dedication, using part of the old church's material. A further church, St Thomas, had been destroyed by this time. During the demolition of All Saints the tomb of William of Waynflete's father, Richard Patten, was broken up but was later restored within Waynflete's Magdalen College Chapel, Oxford.
