West Halton is a parish and a village in the north of Lincolnshire, just two miles south of the River Humber and east of the River Trent. It lies between the parishes of Whitton and Burton on Strather, and is bounded on the west by Alkborough and on the east by Winteringham parish. The parish covers about 2,000 acres and includes the hamlet of Coleby, which lies about a mile south of the village of West Halton. For many years, until 1861, the parish was much larger and included a portion of Gunness parish (as a chapelry). For more information about the parish, see the North Lincolnshire Council web site.
If you are planning a visit:
