Stenigot is a parish about six miles southwest of Louth and a mile southeast of Donington on Bain parish. The parish covered about 1,400 acres of the Wolds in 1805. In White's 1842 Directory, the parish is described as "a picturesque parish of scattered houses and cottages," near the head of a rivulet (unnamed). At that time it consisted primarily of three farms. The parish includes the hamlet of Cold Harbour.
The parish name does not appear on most maps as there is no central village, as such. If you are planning a visit:
- By car, take the A157 northeast out of Wragby toward Louth. Take the B125 south and follow the signs for Donington on Bain. Pass through that village heading south. About a mile south of Donington on Bain and you are in Stenigot parish.
- Birdwatching is popular in this rural parish. See if you can spot a Honey Buzzard.
- The landscape is one of hills, small woods and hedgerows, and Wildlife abounds.
