Navenby is both an ancient village and parish. The parish stradles the old Roman Ermine Street between Boothby Graffoe parish and Wellingore parish, and lies 124 miles north of London, about 8 miles south of the city of Lincoln and 10 miles NW of Sleaford. The parish is elongated in an east-west direction, extending east to the Lincoln Heath and west to the River Brant. The size of the parish has varied over the last two centuries. In 1821 it covered 2,110 acres; in 1951 it was 3,345 acres.
Navenby village lies in the eastern end of the parish. If you are planning a visit:
- By atuomobile, the A607 trunk road passes through the village as it rambles north out of Leadenham on its way to Lincoln. Navenby can also be reached off the A15 motorway north out of Sleaford.
- There used to be passenger rail service back in 1867 for your ancestors, but the railway ceased operations in 1962.
