Northorpe

Description and Travel

Northorpe is a parish and village about 156 miles north of London, 8 miles north-east of Gainsborough, and due south of Scunthorpe about 11 miles. Scotton parish lies to the north and Kirton in Lindsey parish to the north-east. The River Eau runs northward through the eastern portion of the parish and empties into the Trent River. A small parish in area, it covers only about 1,800 acres. Southorpe parish was once an extra-parochial portion of Northorpe.

Researchers should be careful as there are at least two other hamlets called Northorpe in Lincolnshire (in Donington and Thurlby parishes) and the name occurs elsewhere in England.
