Baston is both a village and parish just over three miles northwest of Market Deeping. Much of the parish is reclaimed Fen and part of the land is on an ancient gravel and sand fan left over from the ancient Fen Lake from about 18,000 years ago. The West Glen River forms the parish's north boundary. Across the river to the north lies Thurlby parish and to the west is Greatford. To the south is Langtoft parish. Remnants of the Roman Car Dyke run through the parish. The area is about 3,200 acres of flat fenland, drained by many small canals.
If you are planning a visit:
