Aisthorpe Cricket Club was "Founded in 1895 ... 

After a less than auspicious start to its life, beginning on a losing streak, which it found hard to recover from, it took a necessary break in 1914, not to return in any form until 1932 ...

it was resurrected again in 1946, thanks to the efforts of Dr Monteith at Aisthorpe Hall ...

During the 1960s and 1970s Aisthorpe were often winning the League, and Major Hoult Division One Trophies"

RAF Scampton also extends into the neighbouring parishes of Aisthorpe and Brattleby.

Bulk fuel installation at National Grid Reference SK 96178 79958 close to the site of the former Aisthorpe House.

"RAF Scampton currently has one BFI (Bulk Fuel Installation) for aviation fuel, which is a former NATO installation (BFI 7).

Until closure in 1996, RAF Scampton was connected to the Government Pipeline Storage System (GPSS), which supplied AVTUR (F34) to BFI 7 from an underground pipeline running from a depot at Mistarton.

The fuel was premixed with corrosion and ice inhibiting chemicals before being pumped into the system.

The pipeline entered the site from the west from a spur of the main pipeline and connected to the PRE from where fuel was pumped directly to BFI 7 via an underground pipeline.

The pipeline was fitted with cathodic protection and was tested on a regular basis.

The pipeline is now disconnected and the on site section of pipeline running between the PRE to BFI 7 was removed in 1996.

At present, 18 000 litre bowsers travel by road from RAFC Cranwell to fill BFI 7 on a daily basis, having to cross the main runway at the 05 threshold to access the BFI"

RAF Scampton also extends into the neighbouring parishes of Aisthorpe and Brattleby.

"RAF Scampton stands on the site of a First World War Royal Flying Corps landing field, which had been called Brattleby.

The station was closed and returned to agriculture following the First World War, and reactivated in the 1930s.

It has provided an airfield for fighters in the First World War, bombers during the Second World War and V-force Avro Vulcans during the Cold War ...

Since the temporary closure of RAF Scampton in 1996, and subsequent reactivation, the base has provided a home ... to private companies, temporarily, such as Hawker Hunter Aviation, for the maintenance and storage of aircraft"

"Aisthorpe church is closed for regular worship although the church has not been legally denoted as closed or redundant and the churchyard is still open.

The Church Commissioners, The Diocese of Lincoln and the Springline Parochial Church Council will need to make a decision as to the future use of this lovely village church in Lincolnshire"
