Description and Travel

Carlton-le-Moorland (sometimes given as "Carlton le Moorlands" - note the trailing "S") is both a village and parish. It lies north of the A17 trunk road, northeast of Newark on Trent, 11 miles SSW of Lincoln. It has Bassingham parish lying to the north and Norton Disney to the northwest. The River Witham forms a portion of the parish's northwest boundary, crossed by the Scotwater Bridge, while the River Brant touches the eastern side. The parish covers just over 2,250 acres of good farmland.

The village dates back to at least 1068. Today it is still a small village, retaining many of the old buildings from past centuries. If you are planning a visit:
