This web site is hosted by Laneham Parish Council and we hope that we can keep all parishioners informed on all the latest news and contact details.


Laneham, including Church Laneham, is a small, Trentside village, 13 miles due west of the city of Lincoln and 8 miles East of the market town of Retford.  Laneham has two pubs and its' own brewery.  The brewery pub, 'The Bees Knees' is situated in the heart of the village and 'The Ferry Boat Inn' in ‘Church Laneham’ is close to the River Trent. We also have a craft shop and a thriving garden centre.


Our Mission

Laneham Parish Council intends to be proactive in its' determination to make Laneham a better, inclusive, place to live.  Both social and environmental issues will be addressed and, together with the people of Laneham, we will make the village a place to be proud of.
