Timberland lies 9 miles north-east of Sleaford. It is close to the Roman-built Car Dyke.

Scopwick and Timberland railway station on the Lincoln-Sleaford line opened in 1882 and closed in 1955.

John William Houldershaw was the proprietor of the grocer's shop on the right of this scene which dates from the inter-war period.

Both nave and chancel of St Andrew’s have been rebuilt since medieval times, and there was an extensive restoration in 1887 by H Goddard.

The broad, buttressed tower of St Andrew’s, however, is partly 12th century work, while the nave arcades date from the 13th and 14th centuries.
