Stroxton is both a small village and a small parish. The parish is a narrow dale about three miles south of Grantham just west of the A1 motorway. The parish is bounded on the north-west by Harlaxton, to the north-east by Little Ponton, to the south-east by Great Ponton and to the south-west by Wyville parish. The parish only covers about 990 acres.
The parish has three copious springs which help to supply Grantham with water.
The small village of Stroxton is often unnamed on many maps, as it is just a hamlet now. If you are planning a visit:
Take the A1 Motorway south out of Grantham and turn west where it joins the B1174. The village is about a mile ahead.
The name derives from the Old English Strox+tun, meaning "estate or farm in the marsh". In 1066 it was rendered as Strothistune and for the 1086 Domesday Book as Stroustune. In 1185 is was recorded as Stroweston. Ken Cameron, "A Dictionary of Lincolnshire Place Names"
Anne COLE of Lincolnshire tells us that the locals pronounce the name as "Strowston", which is closer to the 1185 spelling.
