Five and a half miles south-east of Horncastle, Claxby Pluckacre is a small parish in the Wold hills, not even listed on many maps. Hameringham parish is to the north and Revesby parish to the south, with Miningsby parish to the east. There is a small lake at the southern end of the parish. The parish covered about 860 acres in 1913.
There is no village as such, just a scattering of homes. If you are planning a visit:
The first part of the name likely derives from the Old Scandinavian klakkr+by, meaning "farmstead on a hill". The second part may derive from the Old Scandinavian Plucca+aecer, meaning "Plucca's plot of cultivated land". [A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991].
