Beckingham Road leads east out of the village towards Stapleford Woods and Sleaford. Houses and cottages of various ages lie along and just off the road. The village stocks once stood near the Old Vicarage (diagonally opposite The Plough). The road west from the Plough was cut through the village in the 1930s and that beyond the village sign towards Newark was not built until the 1960s
This road was the A17, the main road over the A1 through Coddington from Newark towards Sleaford - until the Newark Relief Rd was built in the 1990s.
