|Louth and Horncastle|
Dogdyke is a hamlet in Lincolnshire, situated approximately two miles south of Tattershall, at the confluence of the Rivers Bain and Witham, and close to where the River Slea joins the Witham. The majority of Dogdyke actually falls within the civil parish of Coningsby in Lindsey, while the civil parish of Dogdyke lies in the opposite bank of the Witham in Kesteven.
The civil parish of Dogdyke originated as the township of the ancient parish of Billinghay. It includes nearby Tattershall Bridge, where the A153 crosses the Witham. Nearby settlements are the hamlets of Chapel Hill and Tattershall Bridge, and Hawthorn Hill to which Dogdyke is conjoined. Chapel Hill is the location of the tripoint of the three Parts of Lincolnshire.
The Chapel of St Nicholas was located at Dogdyke in the 14th century, and was mentioned in 1342. It has long since vanished and its location has not been found. Dogdyke appears as "Dokedyke" in the 14th century.
The hamlet has two public houses, a caravan park and a marina.
Dogdyke falls within the drainage area of the Witham Third District Internal Drainage Board.
Chapel Hill, on the opposite west bank of the Witham, falls within the drainage area of the Witham First District Internal Drainage Board.
