Brandy Wharf, Lincolnshire

Brandy Wharf is a hamlet in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies near and between Waddingham and South Kelsey, where the B1205 crosses the River Ancholme. Brandy Wharf's history has been linked with smuggling. Its name is derived from Brande, a religious sect of Viking settlers who became stranded after their invasion in 867 AD and set up a ferry service. The west bank pick-up point became known as Brande’s Wharf, hence its present name.
