Atterby is a hamlet within the civil parish of Bishop Norton,[1] in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.[2] Between 1866 and 1936 Atterby was a civil parish.[3] It lies 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Bishop Norton.[4]

Atterby is now little more than a cluster of buildings at a crossroads; in the 19th century it was larger with 134 inhabitants, a butcher, shop and a carrier.[5]

By the early 20th century the Everett family had established a bus service, initially with a horse drawn omnibus and later as pioneers in the use of motorised buses. One of their early vehicles was the "Silver Queen".[6] Everett's buses operated in the local area for many years until quite recently. In 2006 JD Everett is still in the village but as a haulage company.

Grade II listed Atterby Mill[7] lies towards the A15 along a private road. It was powered by water from Atterby Beck (which separates the hamlet from Bishop Norton) supplemented by a steam engine. It produced animal feed ground from grain. It was built on the site of a medieval mill.[8] Nearby was the site of an old post windmill, long abandoned.[9][10]
