Donington (sometimes "Donnington") is both a village, a market town and a parish. It lies 110 miles north of London, 10 miles north of Spalding and 10 miles to the southwest of Boston. The parish is bounded on the north by Bicker parish and on the south by Quadring parish. The parish covers over 5,800 acres and includes the hamlet of Northorpe. The area is flat fenland, drained by many small canals.
The nearby "Forty Foot Drain" used to be an important route for barge trade to Boston.
The village lies just off the A52 trunk road. If you are planning a visit:
