Until 1999, the village legally comprised three parishes, Saltfleetby St. Peter, Saltfleetby All Saints and Saltfleetby St. Clement, each one centered on the church that gave it its name. However, the village has operated as one entity for many years.
The village is known locally as Soloby or Sollerby.
Saltfleetby has a total of 3 churches – St. Peter’s, All Saints and St. Clement – two having been moved from their original sites, and both leaving a little of their history on the original sites.
St Peter’s left the Tower, now known as ‘The Stump’ along with its graveyard. St. Clements’ left its ancient Burial Ground. All Saints is now a redundant, but well loved church in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust!
