Description and Travel

Norton Disney is both a parish and a village that lies in the vale of the River Witham, 7 miles north-east of Newark and 11 miles SSW of Lincoln. The two Nottinghamshire parishes of North and South Collingham lie to the west, and the Lincolnshire parishes of Swinderby and Thurlby to the north. The parish covers just over 2,300 acres of good farmland.

The small village of Norton Disney is just south and east off of the A46 trunk road between Lincoln and Newark. The River Witham passes just south of the village. If you are planning a visit:
