Stickford is a village and civil parish located near the A16 road, about 6 miles (9.7 km) south-west from the town of Spilsby, in the East Lindsey district, of the county of Lincolnshire, England.

Stickford is recorded in the Domesday Book as "Stichesforde".[1]

Stickford church is dedicated to Saint Helen and is a Grade II* listed building. It dates from the 13th century although it has been much restored.[2]

Shaws Windmill is a three story red-brick tower mill dating from 1820, which ceased working in 1952, and is now Grade II listed.[4][5]
