Brigg is situated in the very north of Lincolnshire and is a historical market town that dates back to Neolithic times. Its market history dates back to 1205 where it hosted weekly markets and annual fairs. The town is a natural focal point for the surrounding villages which all have a variety of distinct characters and style.

There is diversity throughout the region, for example the town of Broughton is a family location convenient for the larger town of Scunthorpe, Kirton in Lindsey boasts an array of character stone and Georgian houses and Caistor with its well respected Grammar School is the gateway to the Lincolnshire Wolds whilst the villages of Elsham, Redbourne, Grasby and Saxby-all-saints are some of the prettiest in the region.
