Admin HistoryThe Mid-Lincolnshire Electric Supply Company Limited began operating some time between 1930 and 1933. The firm had offices and showrooms in Lincoln, Grantham, Bourne, Spilsby and Skegness. In 1936, it also erected a new Lincoln division headquarters at Heighington. The company supplied electricity to domestic and commercial premises in Lincolnshire. According to company minutes for 1936, it was closely associated with the Lincolnshire and Central Electric Supply Company. Nothing is known of that company whose name does not appear in the 1937 trade directory. The Mid-Lincolnshire company was nationalised with the rest of the electric power industry in 1948 and its activities were taken over by the East Midlands Electricity Board.
