Normanton, sometimes called Normanton on Cliffe, is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A607 road, about 7 miles (11 km) north from the town of Grantham and 18 miles (29 km) south from the city and county town of Lincoln.

The parish church dates from the 11th century and is dedicated to Saint Nicholas. It is a Grade II* listed building in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[1]

In the village is an early 19th-century milestone and village pump, which is both Grade II listed and a scheduled monument, situated next to the main Grantham to Lincoln road. The milestone inscription reads: "From Lincoln 18 miles, from Grantham 7 miles, from London 117 miles".[2][3]
