Bassingham is a village and civil parish in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated approximately 8 miles (13 km) south-west from the city and county town of Lincoln. Bassingham population is 1308.
Bassingham is situated about mid-way between Newark-on-Trent and Lincoln. The parish is defined by the River Witham to the west, and the River Brant to the east (across Bassingham Fen). To the south-west is Carlton-le-Moorland.
The church of St. Michael and all Angels dates from the 12th century. The church is in the Bassingham Group of seven churches.
In 1998 the church added a seventh bell: the ship’s bell from HMS Bassingham, presented by her former commander after she was decommissioned. It hangs in a mahogany bell hood in the north aisle and is rung to signal the start of Sunday worship.
Bassingham has two public houses, the Bugle Horn and the Five Bells, a primary school, and a Methodist chapel.
