The village was founded in 1823 by John Parkinson (steward to Sir Joseph Banks).

St Peter’s, though, is later, and was built by S.S.Teulon in 1854 in the style of the late 13th and early 14th centuries.

The brick church with stone dressings has nave, chancel, north aisle, organ chamber and an elaborate north east tower and spire.

Detail of the odd tower and spire at St Peter's.  Most unusual - but Teulon was noted for his eccentricities.

Opened with what was known as the ‘New Line’, between Coningsby Junction and Bellwater Junctions, in 1913, the line and station closed in 1970.

The route was created primarily to help speed excursionists from the Midlands to Skegness and Mablethorpe and it was very successful at doing this. It also served some small villages en route of which New Bolingbroke was one.

Everything in this view has gone now although the very distinctive former booking office, out of view to the right, remains in a new use to mark the location.
