This parish lies some 120 miles north of London, about 6 miles north-east of Loughborough and just west of Willoughby on the Wolds. The parish covers about 863 acres.
There is no village. The village was deserted by 1535. The site of the village is just a few mounds and dips. There are a few scattered farmhouses. If you are planning a visit:
- Take the A46 motorway north out of Leicester city and follow it out to the Nottinghamshire border. Turn left into Willoughby on the Wolds. Near the west end of the village is a road to Wysall. Turn right onto that road and you will pass through Thorpe in the Glebe. Remember, it is just a few scattered farm houses.
