Helpringham is a parish with a village of the same name. The parish is on the road between Spalding and Sleaford, about 5 miles southeast of Sleaford. Swaton parish lies to the south and Little Hale parish to the north. The parish covers almost 3,100 acres. A portion of the parish is Fenland, but that is now drained and fertile.
A book called "Lincolnshire Railway Stations" by Eric Croft (ISBN 0-946225-77-0) shows a picture of Helpringham station in 1907. At that time, the Great East and Great Northern railways ran trains by the village.
The village lies between the A17 and A52 trunk roads about six miles southeast of Sleaford. The Car Dyke passes just to the east of the village. Thorpe Latimer is a hamlet in the parish, about a mile south of Helpringham village. If you are planning a visit:
