The Parish of Baston


Baston lies at grid reference TF1113, in southern Lincolnshire, between Market Deeping and Bourne, on the A15 road. The eastern part of the parish is farmland on reclaimed fen but both this and the village are founded on a broad and extremely gently sloping fan of sand and gravel, laid down 18,000 or so years ago, on the bed of a proglacial lake. Gravel extraction is consequently, part of the parish’s economy.
