Barkston (sometimes "Barkston le Willows" or "Barkstone in the Willows") is both a village and a parish 4 miles north of Grantham and 110 miles north of London. Marston parish lies to the west, Syston parish to the south. In the eastern portion of the parish is Barkston Heath, and part of that is now an RAF training airfield. The parish covers 2,100 acres in an east-west orientation.
The River Witham runs past the western side of the village, turning its flow from north to west. If you are planning a visit:
