This village and parish are just west of Grantham. Harlaxton parish lies to the south, Woolsthorpe and Denton parish to the southwest and Muston, in Leicestershire, lies to the west. The parish covers about 4,400 acres.
The parish also included the hamlet of Casthorpe, which by 1841 consisted of only three farms.
The village of Barrowby is immediately west of the A1 trunk road and south of the A52, and about a mile and a half north of the Grantham and Nottingham Canal. The Foston Beck travels through the western side of the parish and feeds into the Grantham Canal. If you are planning a visit:
- Take the A1 Motorway to Grantham. This road curves around the west side of Grantham, where it connects to the A52 Trunk Road. Take the A52 west about 1/4 mile and turn south to Barrowby.
