Description and Travel

Rauceby is a single village and ecclesiastical parish which is comprised of two civil parishes, North Rauceby and South Rauceby. You may find records under all three entities.

North Rauceby parish, located about 4 miles west of Sleaford and 11 miles north-east of Grantham, covers about 3,300 acres and is bordered on the north by Cranwell parish and Byards Leap parish, to the east by Leasingham parish and to the west by Normanton parish.

South Rauceby parish, about 3.5 miles west of Sleaford, covers about 2,600 acres and is bounded on the south by Wilsford parish, to the east by Quarrington parish and to the west by Ancaster parish. Bulley Wells, midway between South Rauceby and Sleaford, was famous for several copious limestone springs which feed into the River Slea.

The village of Rauceby is seated on one of the highest parts of Lincolnshire, to the west of Sleaford. If you are planning a visit:
