Leverton is a village and civil parish in the Boston district of Lincolnshire, England, about 6 mi (10 km) east-north-east from Boston, on the A52 road.

It is one of eighteen parishes which, together with Boston, form the Borough of Boston in the county of Lincolnshire, England. The local government has been arranged in this way since the reorganization of April 1, 1974, which resulted from the Local Government Act 1972. This parish forms part of the Coastal electoral ward.

Hitherto, the parish had formed part of Boston Rural District, in the Parts of Holland. Holland was one of the three divisions (formally known as parts) of the traditional county of Lincolnshire. Since the Local Government Act of 1888, Holland had been in most respects, a county in itself.

Before this, Leverton had been in Skirbeck Wapentake, Parts of Holland.

Leverton Grade I listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Helen.[1]
