Marton is both a village and parish in the north of Lincolnshire. The parish lies 150 miles north of London and 5 miles south of Gainsborough with Stow parish just to the east. The River Trent forms the western border and across the river lies Nottinghamshire. There is a small hamlet on the river called Trent Port. The parish covers about 1,300 acres.
The village is almost joined with Gate Burton to the north and sits at the end of a Roman Road which comes from Sturton by Stow in the east. If you are planning a visit:
By car, take the A156 trunk road, south out of Gainsborough. Just past Gate Burton, you will be in Marton. The Roman Road which ends at the village is now the A1500 trunk road.
The Trent River loops in close to the village on the west side.

There is a caravan park in the parish if you are towing your housing behind you.
