Beckingham is a village and civil parish in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish (including Stapleford) at the 2011 census was 452.[1] It is situated approximately 4 miles (6 km) east from Newark-on-Trent on the A17 road, and on the east bank of the River Witham.

Beckingham is largely a residential community with a village hall. The village public house is the Grade II listed Pack Horse Inn.[2] Nearby to the west is Newark Golf Course.

The Grade I listed parish church is dedicated to All Saints.[3] It was restored in 1857, 1888,[4] and 1889-90.[5] The church was featured on the BBC TV programme Restoration in 2006, where it became a regional runner-up.[6] Further listed buildings are The Old Smithy,[7] Sutton Lane Farmhouse,[8] Beckingham Hillside Cottages,[9] Glebe Farmhouse,[10] Apricot Hall,[11] Rose Cottages,[12] The Rectory,[13] and Redvers House,[14]

In 1972 the village was bypassed by a dual-carriageway at a cost of £600,000.[citation needed]
