Description and Travel

Roxby with Risby (or "Roxby cum Risby") is a pair of villages that make up a single parish in the north of Lincolnshire. Both villages lie west of the old Roman Road known as Ermine Street, about 9 miles WSW of Barton on Humber and just north of Scunthorpe. Branches of the Old River Ancholme flow between the villages. The parish of Appleby borders on the south and east and Winterton lies only a mile to the north. The parish covers about 4,900 acres of land and also includes the hamlets of Sawcliffe and Dragonby.

Roxby sits near the top of the Cliff Hills with a nice view of the Humber River. If you are planning a visit:
