About the village

Amber Hill is located 7 miles north-west of Boston and on average is seven feet above sea level. The 5500 acres of Amber Hill is mainly farmland with many of the dwellings and buildings in Amber Hill located on the two parallel roads stemming from the busy A1121 and the drains, dykes and fen land put to agricultural use are prominent features of the Amber Hill area.

It is said that the reasoning behind the Parish’s unusual name is that the village actually stands on a seam of amber coloured gravel and small amounts of this used to be mined many years ago.
