Epworth, Crowle and Villages
Epworth, Crowle and their surrounding villages (including Ealand, Garthorpe, Luddington, Eastoft and Belton) are in an area of North Lincolnshire known as the Isle of Axholme. The Isle lies between the towns of Scunthorpe, Doncaster and Gainsborough and is situated west of the River Trent, separating it from the rest of Lincolnshire.
Epworth was the birth place of the brothers John and Charles Wesley who are largely credited as founding the Methodist movement, and has had many other notable residents including the cricketer Ian Botham, Lesley Garrett, the opera singer, and Sheridan Smith, the actress.
The area has excellent transport links due to its close proximity to motorway networks, with the M180 to the north, and Humberside Airport and Robin Hood Airport within close reach.
There are excellent schools in the area, and plenty of attractions for visitors and residents including a great range of local pubs and restaurants, the Lincolnshire Golf Club and the 7 Lakes Country Park and local football, hockey and cricket teams.
