This village and parish is in the north of Lincolnshire just 3 miles north-west of the conubation of Scunthorpe and 7 miles east of Crowle. The River Trent forms the western border of the parish. The parish of Burton on Stather borders on the north and Gunness (Gunhouse) parish to the south. The parish includes about 2,650 acres of land and part of the hamlet of Crosby (SE 8711), now a suburb of Scunthorpe. Parts of the parish are subject to flooding under severe condiditions.
The village sits on a rise above the Trent, giving views over the surrounding countryside. If you are planning a visit:
- By automobile, from the M181 motorway which passes west of Scunthorpe, take the B1340 north until you see the left turn into Flixborough.
- David WRIGHT has a photograph of the Village Hall on Geo-graph, taken in 2006. This is a good place to stop and get a schedule of forth-coming events.
