Saxilby is the only settlement of any size on the 10-mile long Foss Dyke canal between Torksey Lock on the Trent and Brayford Pool in Lincoln.

Throughout Saxilby's past industry and trade was focused here; now it is a popular mooring spot for leisure craft.

The signal box at Saxilby (SK 892753) was built in 1922 to replace an earlier one within the station limits.

It protects a public road to the south of the station and has a strong LNER style.

The impression is given of a Perpendicular church, though it has a Norman north doorway and Early English nave arcade.

There is a good Perpendicular rood screen.
