Great Sturton is both a parish and a "scattered" village 6 miles north-west of Horncastle and 16 miles east of Lincoln. The River Bain forms the eastern boundary. Sotby parish is to the north and Baumber parish to the south. The parish covers almost 1,600 acres.
If you are planning a visit:
By automobile, take the A158 trunk road north out of Horncastle and turn north onto the B1225 arterial at Baumber. The village should be about 2 miles further on your left.
