Sewstern, Leicestershire

Sewstern is a village in the Melton district of east Leicestershire. It lies just south of Buckminster, with which it shares a primary school, situated between the two villages, and a parish council. The road bisecting the village along a north–south direction (Timber Hill and Stamford Road) is the Romano-Briton byway called Sewstern Lane, which at this point (and for most of its length) is the border between Lincolnshire and Leicestershire.
