Temple Bruer with Temple High Grange was an extra-parochial area in Kesteven, Lincoln, which had in the Medieval period been held by the Knights Templar and later by the Knights Hospitaller of Temple Bruer Preceptory. By an Act Parliament passed on 5 March 1879, Temple Bruer with Temple High Grange was constituted as a parish.[1] At that time the parish was in Flaxwell wapentake, Sleaford Union and County Court district, and the ecclesiastical rural deanery of Longobody. The parish lies 10 miles to the southeast of Lincoln, 4 miles southeast of Navenby and 6 miles northwest of Sleaford. Wellingore and Welbourn parishes lie to the west and Brauncewell to the south. The old Roman Road, Ermine Street, passes through the western edge of the parish, which at this point is a bridleway not a modern road. Temple High Grange is part of the parish. The parish covered about 3,900 acres. The parish is now within the electoral area of Ashby de la Launde and Cranwell Ward in North Kesteven District Council[2]
