Lindsey is a highly dispersed settlement, but with some lovely old houses dotted around its tyes and greens. The village is believed to have given its name to Lindsay Wolseys, a type of cloth. A mid-12th century castle site (possibly with a Saxon antecedent) and St. James chapel are historic monuments.

Lindsey was recorded in Domesday as "Balesheia" and on John Speed's 1610 map as "Lynſey"
