Clixby is a small village in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 2 miles (3 km) north from the town of Caistor, and lies in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Originally a township of Caistor, it was briefly a civil parish but since 1932 forms part of the civil parish of Grasby .[1]

Clixby is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book, with Lord of the Manor as King William I.[2] At the beginning of the 18th century Clixby was the seat of Sir John Fitzwilliam.[3]

The parish church was dedicated to All Hallows and dates from the 13th century with a 19th-century restoration by Hodgson Fowler. It was declared redundant in 1973.[4]
