Sigglesthorne is a small village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Hornsea on the A1035 road (formerly B1244) where it meets the B1243 road.
The village has around 175 houses. There is also an ancient church dedicated to St. Lawrence that was designated in 1966 by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building. There is also a Church of England primary school.
It is rumoured throughout the village that the settlement was given its name as a result of a Viking who lived there. This Viking leader was supposedly called Siggle/Siggul, and since hawthorne is the predominant type of hedge around the village, it was given the name "Siggul's thorne" → Sigglesthorne.
