Northorpe is a parish and village about eight miles north-east of Gainsborough, due south of Scunthorpe about 11 miles and about 150 miles north of London. Scotton parish lies to the north and Kirton in Lindsey parish to the northeast. The River Eau runs northward through the eastern portion of the parish on its way to the Trent. A small parish in area, it covers only about 1,800 acres. Southorpe parish was once an extra-parochial portion of Northorpe.
Researchers should be careful as there are at least two other hamlets called Northorpe in Lincolnshire (in Donington and Thurlby parishes) and the name occurs elsewhere in England.
