Algarkirk is a rural parish near the mouth of the River Welland, 7 miles south-west of Boston, just south of Kirton-in-Holland and north-west of Fosdyke. The parish covers 2,740 acres of rich grazing land, mostly flat fenland, drained by many small canals, principally the Five Towns Drain.

- Bicycling and bird watching are popular local pastimes.
