Description and Travel

Roughton is both a village and a parish in the Wold hills, 4.5 miles south of Horncastle. Dalderby parish lies to the north-east, Kirkby on Bain parish to the south and Haltham parish across the River Bain to the southeast. The parish covered about 1,020 acres in 1815 (part of this was a fen allotment in Wildmore Fen).

Roughton village overlooks the vale of the River Bain to the east as it travels south from Horncastle. On OS maps, the river appears as the "Horncastle Canal". If you are planning a visit:
