Drainage Marsh  Lincolnshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Drainage Marsh like this:

DRAINAGE MARSH, an extra-parochial tract in Boston district, Lincoln; near Swineshead. Pop., 9.

The location is that of Blacktoft Farm: the 1888 Sanitary Districts Diagram for Lincolnshire shows that "Drainage Marsh" was inset into the western edge of the parish of Wigtoft, and our superimposition of the Wigtoft parish boundary onto OS maps shows this to broadly correspond with Blacktoft Farm.
