Harrowby is an ancient ecclesiastical parish, but was divided into two parishes: Harrowby Within and Harrowby Without. Harrowby Within became part of the town of Grantham (see History) and Harrowby Without became the Civil Parish. The parish is a long, narrow strip of land running along the east side of Manthorpe and Grantham parishes, with Belton to the north. The parish covers about 1,323 acres.
The village of Harrowby has been absorbed into the conurbation of Grantham and constitutes the northeast portion of the town and includes the Alma Park Industrial Estate. The Oldershaw Brewery is in Harrowby. If you are planning a visit:
- It is probably easiest to take the B6403 (the Roman Road, Ermine Street) where it passes Grantham to the east and turn off at Harrowby Lane toward Grantham.
