This village and parish are 4 miles south-west of Barton-on-Humber and 9 miles north of Glanford Brigg. The parish covers just over 2,000 acres. The parish is bounded on the west by the River Ancholme and to the south by Saxby All Saints parish.
The village sits along both sides of the B1204 arterial road and less than a mile east of the River Ancholme. If you are planning a visit:
- By automobile, take the B1204 arterial road south from South Ferriby.
- The road leading from Horkstow to the top of the Wold was/is called Piggery Hill by the locals as there were fields which were penned off into smaller enclosures, each with it's own hut for the pigs kept there. [Kevin R. SHUCKSMITH]
