Description and Travel

This village and parish lies just over seven miles north-east of Grantham and six miles west of Sleaford. The parish covers about 2,870 acres and includes the hamlets of Sudbrook and West Willoughby (both west of the village of Ancaster). Wilsford parish is just to the east, with Honington parish to the west and Barkston to the south-west.

North of the village, the B6403 (High Dike) is the dividing line between South and North Kesteven.

The village of Ancaster is east of the A607 trunk road at Honington. It has a train station, once a part of the Grantham, Sleaford and Boston branch of the Great Northern Railway. The houses on the east side of Ancaster village are in Wilsford parish. If you are planning a visit:
