From Stamford, follow Casterton Road/Old Great North Road and the church will be on the left. Parking may be possible on the road. Alternative road-side parking can be found in more minor residential streets nearby, but please be mindful of residents.

    The church of St Peter and St Paul lies at the southern end of the small village of Great Casterton, two and a half miles north-west of Stamford. The churchyard is an open space with few trees, and the church itself is ironstone and dates mostly from the 13th century.
