Ealand is a small village in North Lincolnshire, England. It is situated within the Isle of Axholme, 1 mile (1.6 km) south-east from Crowle, and 0.5 miles (0.8 km) north from the junction between the A161 and the A18 roads.[1]

The Stainforth and Keadby Canal and Crowle railway station are at the southern edge of Ealand. The A161, which previously ran through the village, has been diverted, and uses a new bridge over the parallel railway line and canal.

Ealand has a Primitive Methodist chapel,[2] a war memorial, and the disused building of the previous New Trent Inn.[3] It has two Grade II listed buildings, an early to mid-18th-century house on Ealand Outgate[4] and early 19th-century Curlews farmhouse on the A161.[5]

Immediately to the west of the A161 is Seven Lakes Leisure Park, sited on clay pits of the former Crowle Brickworks.
