North Scarle parish is approximately 10 miles southwest of Lincoln and the same distance NNE of Newark on Trent. Geographically, the parish is more part of Nottinghamshire, by which it is bordered on three sides, than it is Lincolnshire. Eagle parish borders on the east side. Wigsley and Spafford in Nottinghamshire are to the north. South Scarle, which is also in Nottinghamshire, lies just to the south. The Trent River is about a mile to the west. The parish covers about 2,000 acres.
The village is still small and is perhaps best reached by taking the A1133 south off of the A57 trunk road, then turning east once you reach Girton. If you are planning a visit:
Equestrian sports are still popular in the area. Visit the Eagle Hall Estate Riding Centre, North Scarle Grange, North Scarle, Lincolnshire, LN6 9ES.
Fishing is also available at The Poplars. Advance booking required: contact Mr. L. W. Day, The Polars, Eagle Road, North Scarle, Lincoln.
While you are there look for the Jubilee plaques. Alan MURRAY-RUST has a photograph of a Jubilee Plaque on Geo-graph, taken in 2012.
The name Scarle is from the Old English scearn, for "mud or dung clearing". In the 1086 Domesday Book it first appears as Scornelei. [A. D. MILLS, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991]
