Description and Travel

Blyton is both a village and a parish about four and a half miles north-east of Gainsborough and about 153 miles north of London. Laughton parish lies to the north and Pilham parish to the south-east. The parish covered about 4,700 acres in 1913. The parish once included the 250 acre farms of Redhill and Greenhill as extra-parochial lands, but these were formed into a separate civil parish between Blyton and East Stockwith by 1872. These farms were occupied by the BELTON family. The parish also includes the hamlets of Wharton and Carr (or Car). Wharton is one mile south-west of the village of Blyton. Carr was west of Blyton, near the River Trent.

The village of Blyton lies on a rise, astride the Brigg to Gainsborough Road (the A159). If you are planning a visit:
