Harpswell is both a parish and a small village about eight miles east of Gainsborough and nine miles north of Lincoln. The parish itself is bordered on the north by Hemswell parish, to the east by Springthorpe and Heapham parishes and to the south by Glentworth parish. The parish covers about 2,150 acres.
Harpswell village sits at the intersection of two main roads. A small branch of the River Eau passes just to the west of the village. If you are planning a visit:
- The village can be found at the intersection of the A631 trunk road east of Gainsborough and the B1398 north out of Lincoln. If coming north out of Lincoln, it is probably best to take the A15 to the A631 and turn east for one mile, but you'll miss some beautiful scenery.
