Tupholme is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 11 miles (18 km) east from Lincoln, and is the site of the ruined Tupholme Abbey on the road between Horncastle and Bardney.
The Abbey, founded before 1190 by Gilbert and Alan de Neville, was the home of Premonstratensian white canons, numbering around 24 in the 15th century. The ruins chiefly consist of parts of the Early English wall of the refectory with lancet windows, and a reader's pulpit with trefoiled arches. It was sold-off after the Dissolution of the Monasteries. William Willoughby purchased the site and built Tupholme Hall,[when?] now demolished.
