Formerly known as, 'The Parish of Morton' and the quiet picturesque 
 hamlet of Hanthorpe, the name was changed in the autumn of 2004 to avoid confusion with another named 'Lincolnshire Parish of Morton' near Gainsborough.

Set in a rural environment the village offers wide social and recreational activities organised by the various committees.

In 2004 the village came first in its category of the Best Kept Village competition and the Parish Council was awarded Quality Status, at the time one of only two villages in Lincolnshire to achieve this.
Quality Status is renewed every 4 years and in 2008 the Parish Council decided not to renew Quality Status as at the time it was considered not to be beneficial to the village.
