Description and Travel

Allington is one of those odd birds in the parish tree. The civil parish of Allington includes the two eclessiastical parishes of East Allington and West Allington. In ancient times, West Allington was an eclessiastical parish and East Allington was a chapelry (chapel of ease) of nearby Sedgebrook parish. There were two separate villages. East Allington was separated from the parish of Sedgebrook on 18 October 1872 and united with West Allington.

To further confuse things, East Allington is south and slightly west of West Allington. East Allington is north of Sedgebrook parish and West Allington is south of Long Bennington and Foston parishes. Just east of East Allington is Bottesford in Leicestershire. The two parishes cover about 2,100 acres of land.

The united village of Allington lies mostly in West Allington and partly in East Allington parish. It sits 4.5 miles north-west of Grantham and ten miles south-east from Newark. A little to the south of the village is an ancient Chalybeate spring called Saltwell. If you plan to visit:
