Claxby St Andrew (sometimes known as Claxby), is a village and former parish about 3 miles (5 km) north of Alford, in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.

The parish church, which was dedicated to Saint Andrew, was built in 1846 to replace an earlier thatched structure. It was declared redundant by the Diocese of Lincoln in 1990 and sold the same year.[1] It is a Grade II listed building.[2]

Claxby Manor House[1] (also known as Claxby Hall) was built around 1760, reputedly for Samuel Dashwood as the Dower House to Well Hall. It later became the vicarage, and is a Grade II listed building.[3]

Claxby Chalk Pit, also known as Mill Hill Quarry, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest[4] and nature reserve which lies east of the village.[5]
