Frampton is both a village and parish which lies about 104 miles north of London and only 3.5 miles south from Boston. It is bordered on the north by Wyberton parish and on the south by Kirton parish. On the east, it extends all the way to the Wash. The parish covers about 5,520 acres of flat fenland, drained by many small canals.
In this part of Lincolnshire, many adjustments have been made to boundaries and some civil parishes do not match their ecclesiastical equivalent. Always check a map of the period you are researching. On 12 March 1909, by Local Government Board Order No. 48320, the former civil parish of "The Friths" was amalgamated with Frampton. In 1881, the parish covered 7,900 acres. In 1921, it covered 5,554 acres.
The village of Frampton is small, running in an east-west direction along the roads. If you are planning a visit:
- It is probably easiest to take the A16 south out of Boston and turn for Frampton right after passing Wyberton.
