Roughton is both a village and a parish in the Wold hills, 4.5 miles south of Horncastle and 102 miles north of London. Dalderby parish lies to the north-east, Kirkby on Bain parish to the south and Haltham parish across the River Bain to the south-east. The parish covered about 1,020 acres in 1815 (part of this was a fen allotment in Wildmore Fen).
