Freiston, or Frieston, is both a village and a parish in Lincolnshire, 3 miles east of Boston. The parish covers about 5,200 acres of low, well-drained Fenland.
White's 1872 Directory describes "a pleasant straggling village, bearing the names of Church end and Halltoft-end." Haltoft End is a village just to the north of Freiston village. The parish also includes the hamlets of Freiston Shore and Crane-end (or "Scrane End"). If you are planning a visit:
- The village itself is 3 miles due east of Boston and can be reached by local roads or south off the A52 just west of Boston.
