Withcall is a small farming village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies within the Lincolnshire Wolds, and 4 miles (6.4 km) south-west from Louth.

The village was served by Withcall railway station, a small station halt on the long-since defunct Louth to Bardney line; a section of the platform edge still remains, and there is a well-preserved tunnel close-by. There are legends of a ghost train being heard in the vicinity of Withcall.[according to whom?]
