Pickworth is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is about 6 miles (10 km) east of Grantham and 10 miles (16 km) south of Sleaford.

The 1086 Domesday Book lists Pickworth as having forty households and a church.[1]

The Church of England parish church of Saint Andrew is a Grade I listed building built of limestone and dating from the 12th century. The 14th-century rebuilding of the church is said to date from 1356, probably by the Pickworth family.[2] Over the chancel arch are 14th-century wall paintings dated to about 1380.
