Foston is both a village and a parish nearly 6 miles northwest of Grantham, lying just south of the River Witham. Long Bennington parish lies to the west, Westborough parish to the north, and Marston parish lies to the east. The parish covers about 2,100 acres. The Foston Beck (stream) completes the eastern border.
If you are planning a visit:
By automobile, take the A1 trunk road west out of Grantham (toward Newark-on-Trent). The road passes just south of the village.
The name Foston is from the Old Scandinavian Fos+ton, for "farmstead of Fotr", appearing in the 1086 Domesday Book as Foztun. [A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991]
