Description and Travel

Edlington is both a village and a parish about two miles north west of Horncastle. Bounded on the east by the River Bain, the parish is bordered on the south by Thimbleby parish, to the southwest by Horsington and on the west by Wispington. The parish is in the west part of The Wolds and covers about 2,740 acres.

White's Directories of Lincolnshire indicate that Edlington parish, in the early 1800's, extended in a long narrow strip some nine miles to the River Witham. More recent parish boundary maps do not show this extension. But earlier maps do show a long thin strip of land extending to Stixwould parish. That strip of land was annexed to Horsington parish after 1832.

Edlington village sits on a hillside, is small and lies mostly on the south side of the winding main street. If you are planning a visit:
