The parish itself lies to the WSW of Scunthorpe, just south of Burringham parish and extends to the River Trent. East Butterworth and Messingham parishes are to the south. The western portion of the parish is rural farmland. In ancient times, the parish included the hamlets of Ashby, Burringham, Holme and Yaddlethorpe. Bottesford Beck is a small stream in the parish.
