Leake is a village and a parish 115 miles north of London, 8 miles north-east of Boston and about 3 miles due east of Sibsey in the Fen region. Technically, the parish is known as "Old Leake". There is a hamlet called "New Leake" in Eastville parish, further north. In 1872, the parish included 7,193 acres of land. It now covers about 9,400 acres.
In addition to the village of Old Leake, there is "Leake Commonside" just to the north of Old Leake. Leake Commonside was a separate parish for a while. If you are planning a visit:
