About the location
Epworth 5 miles; Bawtry 8 miles; Doncaster 10 miles; Gainsborough 16 miles; Sheffield 31 miles; York 42 miles.
The North Lincolnshire village of Wroot sits serenely within the Broad Valley of the River Trent. The name Wroot is very likely to have derived from the Old English word of wrot, meaning snout in relation to a spur of land. The River Trent passes over 200,000 acres of rich fenland, and when drained in the 17th century, the area became known as the Isle Of Axholme. Before the land was drained, Wroot was indeed an island. Today, the village is home to a pub, a shop/Post Office, a school and two churches. Close by are the small market towns of Epworth and Bawtry, and within reach, the larger towns of Doncaster and Gainsborough. Whilst staying in Wroot, why not explore the Lincolnshire coast or the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Beauty? Also within driving distance is the large town of Doncaster, which is famous for its St Leger race each September, and further afield are the cities of Sheffield and York. Wroot is a convenient base for exploring both Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.
