Hibaldstow is a large parish and village, 4 miles south-west from Brigg, 4 north-east from Kirton-in-Lindsey. Today Hibalstow is probably best known for Seargents Ice Cream & the Hibaldstow Airfield where the Skydiving club is based.
Hibaldstow was founded as a Roman legionary 'roadside fort' on the road from Lincoln to the Humber. Later it became a 'posting station' on the same road. The earliest evidence for occupation suggests a date in the late first century. Occupation continued into the late fourth century. There is no Iron Age settlement evidence from the Roman site itself. .
