This small village and parish are nearly 5 miles north-east of Sleaford, in a rural, agricultural area. Ewerby parish lies to the south and Ruskington parish to the north-west. The eastern part of the parish is bounded by the Car Dyke. The parish covers just under 2,000 acres.
The Sleaford Canal passes just south of the village. If you are planning a visit:
Anwick lies on the A153 trunk road.
If you are lucky, you might see some Swans on the River Slea as Jim THORNTON did in this photograph on Geo-graph, taken in February, 2006.
Anwick is from the Old English Amma+wic, meaning "village of Amma". It appears as Amuinc in the 1086 Domesday Book, and as Amewic in 1218. A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991.
