Wootton is a small village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 5 miles (8 km) south-east from Barton-upon-Humber, 7 miles (11 km) north-east from Brigg and 3 miles (5 km) north from Humberside Airport.
Wootton is an Anglo-Saxon settlement and is recorded in the Domesday Book as "Udetune". Inhabited by 8 villagers, 7 smallholders and 71 freemen, in over 40 households, it was considered 'very large'. The lordship of the manor was jointly held by Odo of Bayeux, a half-brother of William the Conqueror and Ralph de Mortimer, with Mortimer the tenant-in-chief.
To the North of the village is the Grade II* listed Wootton Hall which was built in 1796 for John Uppleby. Surrounding structures including a house (formerly one of a pair), a barn, the hall gates, and stables and other outbuildings,  are also Grade II listed with English Heritage.
There was a village windmill on Green Lane, but it was demolished in the mid-20th century.
The village is surrounded by arable land and has retained its character as a result of its designation as a "limited growth settlement" by North Lincolnshire Council. It is known locally for its large pond, which lies at the eastern end of the village. Whilst there is no longer a village shop or post office, there is a village hall, a small primary school, and a public house – the Nags Head. The village water pump has recently been restored and is located on High Street.
