Cabourne is a hamlet and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A46 road, and just over 1 mile (1.6 km) east from the town of Caistor. It is in the civil parish of Swallow.

The parish church is a Grade II* listed building dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The tower dates from the 11th century, the rest of the church being 15th-century, with a restoration in 1872. During restoration a Norman font was unearthed below the floor. A late 11th- or 12th-century grave marker lies against the east wall of the chancel.[1][2]

An 1830 Grade II listed octagonal pump house exists here.[3]

Pelham's Pillar is a 128 ft high Grade II listed tower, dating from 1840-49 by E. J. Willson. A plaque above the door commemorates Charles Anderson Pelham, Lord Yarborough who planted 12,532,700 trees in Cabourne High Wood between 1787 and 1828.[4] The column was begun by Pelham's son in 1840, and completed by his grandson in 1849.[5]
