Description and Travel

Lenton is both a town and parish nine and half miles southeast of Grantham and four miles west of Folkingham. The parish itself is bounded on the north by Sapperton parish, to the west by Ingoldsby parish and on the south by Irnham parish. The parish lies along the old Roman Road and covers about 1,880 acres.

Lenton is a small village, off the main roads. The parish also included the hamlets of Hanby, Keisby and Osgodby. Hanby is a half mile north of Lenton on the old Roman Road and is believed to have been a separate parish in ancient times. Keisby is a mile southwest of Lenton Village and contains the site of a medieval village. Osgodby is another half mile further south and is the site of a spring and Osgodby Hall. A small beck runs through the parish and feeds into the River Glen. If you are planning a visit:
