Amcotts parish, formed in 1850 from part of Althorpe parish, sits inside a bend in the River Trent about 3 miles north of Althorpe village, 4 miles northwest of the conurbation of Scunthorpe and 7 miles east of Crowle. The parish of Flixborough lies across the River. It is primarily a rural parish, covering about 1,990 acres of flat moorland. If you are planning a visit:
- By automobile, the village is perhaps best reached off of the A18 trunk road to Althorpe, then north on the B1392 as it follows the banks of the River Trent. Once past Keadby, Amcotts village is next.
