Description and Travel

Burton on Stather (or "Burton upon Stather") is a parish in the north of Lincolnshire, four miles north of Scunthorpe, four miles west of Winterton and 165 miles north of London. A tiny portion of the parish borders on the River Trent. The parish covers about 3,500 acres and includes the hamlets of Normanby and Thealby within its borders.

The village of Burton on Stather is situated on the brow of a cliff on the east bank of the River Trent. The village is famed for its magnificent views. On a clear day, the towers of York Minster some thirty miles away are visible. Just north of the village is Alkborough Hill, providing viewing points over the rivers and surrounding countryside.

Parts of the parish are floodrisk areas. If you are planning a visit:
