The village stands near the East Lincoln railway, 5½ miles NNW of Louth; occupies the site of a Roman settlement; and has a station on the railway, and a post office under Louth. The parish is in Louth district, and comprises 2,250 acres. Real property, £3,190. Pop., 401. Houses, 85. The manor belongs to the trustees of J. Livesey, Esq.
