Dogdyke is part of the civil parish of Dogdyke with Chapel Hill[2] within the district of North Kesteven[3] and is within the ecclesiastical parish of Billinghay. The civil parish also includes nearby Tattershall Bridge, where the A153 crosses the Witham.[1] Nearby settlements are the hamlets of Chapel Hill and Tattershall Bridge, and Hawthorn Hill to which Dogdyke is conjoined.[1]

The Chapel of St Nicholas was located at Dogdyke in the 14th century, and was mentioned in 1342.[4] It has long since vanished and its location has not been found. Dogdyke appears as "Dokedyke" in the 14th century,[5] and fell within the ancient wapentake of Langoe.

The hamlet has two public houses, a caravan park and a marina.


The first drainage pump at Dogdyke was built in 1796 and was wind-powered. It was replaced in 1856 by the Dogdyke Pumping Station which was driven by steam, and later by diesel.[6]

Dogdyke falls within the drainage area of the Witham Third District Internal Drainage Board.[7]

Chapel Hill, on the opposite west bank of the Witham, falls within the drainage area of the Witham First District Internal Drainage Board.[8]
