Buslingthorpe is a hamlet and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated half a mile east from the A46 at Faldingworth and 3 miles (5 km) south-west from Market Rasen.

The hamlet is approximately 3 square miles (7.8 km2) in area, and comprises a moat, 1 farm, St Michael's Church (now disused, but open to the public) and approximately 20 houses. A large manor house was constructed in approximately 2010 on the land of 2 demolished houses.[citation needed]

The hamlet is believed to have been founded as a medieval village. A writer in Notes and queries in 1932 noted that the Buslingthorpe (shared with Buslingthorpe, Leeds and Buckfastleigh, Devon) contains 13 different letters, exactly half the alphabet, none repeated and with no hyphenation, and wondered whether that was unique.[1]
