Alkborough - An Introduction
12. Apr 2006 at 14:01
 
Alkborough is an English village of about 450 people in North Lincolnshire, located in an isolated but attractive position near the northern end of the Cliff range of hills overlooking the point called Trent Falls, where the Rivers Trent and Ouse join to form the River Humber.
 
The parish, which covers about 2,875 acres (12 kmē), includes the hamlet of Walcot (a 'shrunken village'), which lies about a mile (1.6 km) south of the village of Alkborough.
 
The village of Alkborough was once thought to be the location that the Romans called Aquis but this name is now usually associated with the town of Buxton in Derbyshire (Aquis Arnemetiae).
