Description and Travel

Swineshead is both a village and parish about 5 miles west of Boston. The parish is just over 100 miles north of London. It is bounded on the south by Bicker parish. The parish covers about 7,100 acres of flat fenland, drained by many small canals. The parish contains the hamlets of Baythorpe, Holt Hill and Crossgates.

The village lies along the old Sleaford and Holbeach Road and on the south side of the Hammond Beck. This was an important market town until the middle of the seventeenth century. If you are planning a visit:
