South Killingholme is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 8 miles (13 km) north-west from the centre of Grimsby and 1 mile (1.6 km) north from the A180 road. Considerably larger than its neighbour, North Killingholme, together they make up the area of Killingholme. The parish includes oil refineries and terminals, and Immingham Power Station.

Geography[edit]

The civil parish lies between North Killingholme to the north, Ulceby to the west, Brocklesby to the south-west (the Lincolnshire/North Lincolnshire boundary), Habrough and Immingham to the south (the North Lincolnshire/North East Lincolnshire boundary). The parish includes Ulceby railway station to the east and part of the A180 near the railway bridge, all of the Humber Refinery, the Immingham Power Station, the Immingham Coal Terminal, the Humber International Terminal (built in 2002), most of the Associated Petroleum Terminals, Immingham Ore Terminal, and the south-east corner of the Lindsey Oil Refinery. The division between North and South Killingholme is the Eastfield Road railway bridge and West Middle Mere Road. Ulceby is in the parish as is Ulceby level crossing. The village is more heavily populated then North Killingholme. The parish is in the Ferry ward of North Lincolnshire.

Community[edit]

Village amenities include a doctor's surgery, hairdressers, village shop, primary school, community centre, sandwich shop, park, and a chip shop. The public house is the Cross Keys. The Yarborough Arms at Ulceby is also in the parish.

South Killingholme holds an annual fete. ConocoPhillips sponsors the Killingholme Gala every August as a part of its community relations policy, and has given money to local projects such as a new playground for the school and the refurbishment of a roundabout on the dual carriageway.[citation needed]

The village was featured on a programme produced for Sky One, The Toughest Villages in Britain in 2003. The programme has since been repeated on Sky Three.[citation needed]

Community centre[edit]

South Killingholme Community Centre is a facility for village activities, and has a tennis court. Much of the building is an auditorium and theatre which has been a venue for live music, discos and bingo. A smaller function room previously hosted youth club activities and other events. The annual Killingholme Gala is held in an adjacent field.

Mayflower Wood[edit]

ConocoPhillips, now Phillips 66, were responsible for the development of Mayflower Wood, a 120-acre (0.49 km2) community woodland just outside the village. Planting started in 2005 and over two years over 67,000 trees and shrubs were planted. The woodland was opened by Prince Andrew, Duke of York KG GCVO ADC after a competition to name it was won by Joshua Hickson from Killingholme School.[1]

Refineries[edit]

South Killingholme Oil Storage Facility

The Humber[2] and Lindsey oil refineries have dramatically dominated the skyline around the village since the 1960's. The Humber Refinery and Total Lindsey Refinery produce over a third of UK fuels.

Large traffic increases at the time of refinery workers travelling to and from work forced one of the village roads to be converted into a one way system.
