New Leake is a village and civil parish, in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 9 miles (14 km) north from Boston, and 10 miles (16 km) east from Coningsby.

St Judes Mission church lies within the village of New Leake. It appears to have been built and opened around 1896.[1][2] It is part of the Stickney Group of churches[3]

East Fen Chapel was a Primitive Methodist chapel originally built in 1831, but was replaced by a new building in 1855. It closed in 1969.[4]

New Leake primary school was built in 1890, originally as the New Leake Board School, by the United School Board of the parishes of Old and New Leake (1881-1903).[5]
