This village and parish lies just seven miles due north of Grantham and about nine miles west of Sleaford. Caythorpe parish is just to the northeast, with Normanton parish to the east and Hougham parish to the southwest. The parish covers about 4,000 acres.
The village of Hough on the Hill sits appropriately on a commanding rise. The hamlets of Brandon (two miles north-west of the village) and Gelston (one mile south-west) are part of the parish. Brandon is between two branches of the River Brant (hence its name). On Castle Hill, near the church, are several springs, often cited as the source of the River Brant. If you are planning a visit:
