Strubby is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated just north of the A157 road, 8 miles (13 km) south-east from Louth and 4 miles (6.4 km) north from Alford. The village forms part of Strubby and Woodthorpe civil parish, with the nearby hamlet of Woodthorpe.

The parish church is a Grade II* listed building dedicated to Saint Oswald, dating from the 13th century, although it was largely rebuilt in 1857 by Maughan and Fowler, with exception of the chancel which was built in 1874 by Ewan Christian. It is an edifice of brick and stone in the early Decorated and Perpendicular styles. The font is 15th century. In the nave is a small tablet to William Ballett who died in 1648 aged 99, of Woodthorpe Hall.[1]
