Hackthorn is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 6 miles (10 km) north from the city and county town of Lincoln, and 1 mile (1.6 km) east from the A15. According to the 2001 Census it had a population of 180.[1]

The village dates back to Roman times. Its most prominent building is its hall, a large square brick house, built in the late 18th century in a landscaped park of around 100 acres (0.40 km2).[citation needed]

Situated among the trees of the park overlooking the lake is the parish church, dedicated to St Michael and All Angels. A village church is mentioned in the Domesday Book, although the present church is a Victorian gothic building. It contains carved woodwork in the reredos screen and gallery, and an 1869 Nicholson Organ, fully restored in 2006.

There is also a primary school, post office, shop and village hall.
