Sibsey Trader Mill
|Boston and Skegness|
The Greenwich Meridian passes just to the west of Sibsey, crossing the Stone Bridge Drain canal.

The Sibsey Trader Mill
This six-storey windmill, which was built to replace an earlier post mill, has six sails and was completed in 1877 by Sanderson and Son of Louth. In 1954 it ceased working under wind-power, and fell into disuse. It was restored to working order with engine-driven mill stones in 1981, and is under the guardianship of English Heritage. It is still in operation.
St Margaret's Church
The mediæval church, made up of work from the 12th to 16th centuries, is a Grade I listed building, and is dedicated to Saint Margaret. The church has a square, Early English Period tower at the western end. It was completely restored in 1840, and the chancel rebuilt and nave and aisles partly rebuilt in 1855. The remains of the churchyard cross, located near the porch, is Grade II listed, and a scheduled monument.
Today the church is part of a group of parishes, Sibsey with Frithville, with a varied pattern of worship and community activity across three parish churches.
The churchyard has an avenue of lime trees and parts are set aside as wildlife sanctuary.
