Stixwould is both a village and a parish. The parish lies about seven miles WSW of Horncastle and about 125 miles north of London. The parish itself is bounded on the north by Horsington parish, to the west by Blankney and on the southeast by Woodhall. The parish is in the western edge of The Wolds and covers about 2,300 acres. The River Witham forms the south-west boundery.
The ancient village of Stixwould lies about a mile east of the River Witham on a rise above the river. A small stream runs just north of the village, feeding into the River Witham. If you are planning a visit:
- It is probably easiest to take the B1190 west out of Horncastle and to turn south at Bucknall.
