Description and Travel

131 miles north of London, Spilsby parish sits between Skegness on the coast and Horncastle in the Wold hills, and is about ten miles southwest of Alford. Partney parish is to the north and Toynton St. Peter parish to the south. The parish covered about 2,340 acres in 1842.

The town of Spilsby was described in White's 1842 Directory as "a small, but thriving and well-built market town... pleasantly seated on an eminence, which overlooks an extensive tract of marshes and fens". Eresby is a small hamlet just south of town. If you are planning a visit:
