Warnsveld is a town in the eastern Netherlands, about 2 km east of Zutphen.

Warnsveld's Martinuskerk (Church of Saint Martin) was probably built as early as the 9th or 10th century. The first mention of the name Warnsveld in writing is from the year 1121.

Warnsveld was a separate municipality until 2005, when it was merged with Zutphen.[1] The former municipality had a population of about 9,000, and covered both the village of Warnsveld and nearby Warken.
