Tupholme parish lies about midway between Horncastle and Lincoln, just a little south of Gautby and northwest of Bucknall parish. The parish is just 2 miles north of the River Witham and covers just under 1,800 acres.
The village of Tupholme does not appear on an Ordnance Survey motoring atlas. If you are planning a visit:
Take the A158 out of either Horncastle or Lincoln, then take the B1202 trunk road south from Wragby. This will take you into the area of Tupholme parish.
Ann Cole advises: "Tupholme wasn't a parish (for most of history) so it won't be listed as one in the Horncastle Deanery. It is extra parochial, was an abbey in the days before Henry VIII got at it. The people who lived there would have a choice of parishes to use - possibly Bardney, Gautby, Bucknall."
White's 1842 Directory refers to Tupholme as "an extra-parochial township" which covers 1795 acres. The 1882 Directory refers to Tupholme as a "churchless parish." But Kelly's 1900 Directory tells us that it is now a parish.
