If you are visiting in January you may be lucky enough to experience one of the oldest traditions in England - The famous Haxey Hood. This a kind of rugby game played by locals, where a leather tube is slowly walked by a large unorganised rugby scrum to 1 of 4 pubs, where it remains until the following year's game. It really is an experience never to be forgotten - for more information try the following links:

There are many footpaths and trails in and around the village making it excellent walking or cycling territory. So whatever your age or circumstances you can always find something of interest during your visit.
