Saxilby (sometimes "Saxelby"), not to be confused with Saxby or the Saxelby in Leicestershire, is a parish and small town about 6.5 miles north-west of Lincoln and 142 miles north of London. To the west is Kettlethorpe parish, to the north is Sturton by Stow and to the south-east lies Skellingthorpe parish. Nottinghamshire lies to the south-west. Saxilby parish covers about 4,420 acres. Included in the parish are the two small hamlets of High and Low Ingleby (or "Ingoldby") about one mile north of the main village. The parish is often refered to as "Saxilby with Ingleby".
The village of Saxilby has grown into a small town. It lies on the north bank of the Fossdyke Navigation Canal between Lincoln and Torskey on the Trent River. The River Till flows southward into the Fossdyke just east of the town. If you are planning a visit:
