Whaplode Drove

Welcome to the St John the Baptist Parish Church website!


Whaplode Drove is a village in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, approximately 10 miles South of Spalding and 100 miles North of London. We are a friendly and welcoming Church of England parish in the Deanery of East Elloe, within the Diocese of Lincoln. The hamlet of Shepeau Stow (incorporating Dowsdale) is 1 mile to the South-West and neighbouring village Gedney Hill is 2.5 miles to the East.


This website aims to cover not only aspects of our church ministry, worship and outreach programmes, but also provide information regarding the wider village and community including (but not limited to) the Churchroom, Elizabethan Centre, current village life, upcoming community events and local history/genealogy.
