West Riding of Lindsey

The West Riding of Lindsey was a division of the Lindsey part of Lincolnshire in England. It consisted of the north western part of the county, and included the Isle of Axholme and the Aslacoe, Corringham, Manley, Lawress and Well wapentakes.

The administrative centre of the riding was Kirton-in-Lindsey. At the time of the Domesday Book, the riding also contained Lincoln, although in 1409 it became a county corporate. Other important towns included Gainsborough.
