Hundleby is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is a suburb of the town of Spilsby.[1]

Hundleby is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Hundelbi", with Ivo Tallboys as Lord of the Manor.[2]

The church, which is a Grade II listed building, is dedicated to Saint Mary. It was rebuilt in 1854-55 using original greenstone from the previous 14th-century church.[3]

Spilsby Union Workhouse was built in Hundleby in 1837, to designs by George Gilbert Scott.[4] After 1930 it became a Public Assistance Institution, and in 1948 the Gables Hospital providing geriatric care.[5] It was eventually closed and demolished.
