The Parish of Grasby is situated in the District of West Lindsey in the County of Lincolnshire.

It is a fairly compact rural community consisting of the village of Grasby, the hamlet of Clixby and a few surrounding farms. Most of the Parish is on the South side of the A1084 between the market towns of Brigg, about 6 miles to the West, and Caistor, about 3 miles to the East.

Grimsby and Scunthorpe are the nearest larger towns, both being about 15 miles away.

 The Parish has a population of approximately 440 people.

Grasby is fortunate in having a very successful Primary School, a good local pub / restaurant, The Cross Keys, 3 self catering holiday cottages, Treetops , a very active village hall and a listed Church, Grasby All Saints.

There are several businesses in the village, see the appropriate page.

The hamlet of Clixby has a very small and beautiful All Hallows Church.

In 2005 Grasby won the  Calor Village of the Year competition  for Central England, in the Building Community Life category.

In the past 20 years, a considerable number of new houses have been built in the village and many existing houses have been extended. So the population has increased, although the overall size of the village is little changed. Now there are several quite large 4, 5 and even 6 bed roomed houses in the village.

It is only 3 miles to Caistor where there is a wide choice of shops, including the CO-OP supermarket, a post office, butchers, newsagents, bank, hairdressers, cafes, take - a -ways and restaurants. Caistor has the well known Grammar School and a secondary school. A wider choice of shops and other facilities are available in Brigg.

Humberside International airport is five miles away, with 3 daily flights to Holland ( with connections world wide from Schipol ) and regular flights to Aberdeen and Copenhagen. Also many charter holiday flights.

The village is situated on the Southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds and the higher parts of the village give commanding views over the countryside to the South, as far as Lincoln Cathedral, 22 miles to the South.

The “ Viking Way “, one of the country’s favourite long distance walks, passes through the village. This 147 mile walk starts at the Humber Bridge, about 14 miles to the North of Grasby, and finishes in Oakham, Rutland.
