Waddingtonâs pleasant microclimate is due to its inland position. Away from the moderating effects of the sea, Waddington heats up in the summer and cools off in the winter. The RAFâs air show in July, which hundreds flock to see, often takes place without being upset by rainy weather. The RAF base here is one of the oldest in the UK. Waddington is also situated on a small limestone cliff, one of very few hills in Lincoln, which affords the village breath-taking views of River Witham valley. This limestone is a favoured building material for local houses.
