Winnibriggs and Threo is a wapentake in the Parts of Kesteven, the south-east division of Lincolnshire. It had a population of 31,769 in 2011.


The wapentakes of Winnibriggs and Threo (or Threw) were formed in the early Middle Ages. Both are mentioned in Domesday Book.[1] It is unclear when they were merged. In the 1830s the combined wapentake included part of the town of Grantham (the "Soke of Grantham" was usually designated separately in that period)[2] and of the parishes of:

*: Remainder in the Soke of Grantham.
: Remainder in Aswardhurn wapentake.
