Wildmore is a parish, often called Thornton le Fen, although for many years the two have been separate civil parishes. It lies 11 miles south of Horncaslte and 9 miles north-west of Boston. Originally, it was all Fenland, mostly uninhabited, with parts allocated to various other parishes as land was drained. It has been part of the Boston district as well as part of the Horncastle district over time.
There is no village of Wildmore. New York is a hamlet in the parish. Bunker's Hill and Gipsy Bridge are hamlets in the old Thornton le Fen parish. The River Witham flows toward Boston down the southwest side of the parish. If you are planning a visit:
