Buslingthorpe is a hamlet in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated half a mile east from the A46 at Faldingworth and 3 miles (5 km) south-west from Market Rasen.

The hamlet is approximately 3 square miles (7.8 km2) in area, and comprises a moat, 1 farm, St Michael's Church (now disused, but open to the public) and approximately 20 houses. A large manor house is currently under construction on the land of 2 recently demolished houses.[citation needed]

The hamlet is believed to have been founded as a medieval village. A writer in Notes and queries in 1932 noted that the place-name Buslingthorpe (shared with Buslingthorpe in Leeds) contains 13 different letters, exactly half the alphabet, none repeated and with no hyphenation, and wondered whether this was unique.[1]
