Description and Travel

Alford is both a parish and a small but ancient market town. A small brook runs through the parish, which sits 141 miles north of London, and only 6 miles from the North Sea, 8 miles northeast of Spilsby and 13 miles southeast of Louth. Bilsby parish is just to the east, and Well parish to the south. The parish covers about 1,100 acres.
