Situated in North Lincolnshire, Winterton is a town of around five thousand inhabitants and lies about 5 miles north-east of Scunthorpe.

Although not a great deal is known about its early history, Winterton is known to have had significant Roman connections. The old Roman road of Ermine Street runs nearby and many Roman artefacts have been found in the area including in 1747 the discovery of well-preserved mosaic pavements. William Fowler a local builder produced some highly-acclaimed prints of these pavements and some of his original work is held at North Lincolnshire Museum… read more history here.
