Description and Travel

Oxcombe is a tiny parish, both in size and population. For many decades it consisted of just one farm, located 8 miles due south of Louth and 7 miles north-east of Horncastle. Worlaby parish lies to the south and Ruckland parish to the East. The parish is still geographically small, covering just over 1,010 acres.

The "village" of Oxcombe consisted of just a few cottages and the church. The site is located just south of a road from Burwell on the A16 trunk road and Scamblesby on the A153 trunk road. If you are planning a visit:
