Route Outline

North and South Rauceby lie on the Southern Lincolnshire Edge at one of North Kesteven's highest points. Antiquarians even used the name 'Rauceby Altera' and looking east on a clear day Boston Stump can be seen from the hill above Heath Farm. Anciently known as Rosbi and listed in Domesday as Roscebi, the name derives from the Old Scandanavian for Rauthr+by, or 'Rauthr's village'. Rauceby Hall was built by Anthony Peacock, between 1841 - 1846, at a cost of £ 24,000 (about £ 1M today).
