Cuxwold is a village in the civil parish of Swallow, in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies in the Lincolnshire Wolds, 4 miles (6 km) east from Caistor and 10 miles (16 km) south-west from Grimsby.

Cuxwold Grade II* listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Nicholas.[1] The church, of 11th-century origin but with an incorporated earlier Saxon tower arch, was considerably restored and rebuilt in 1860 by James Fowler.[2][3] The restoration was carried-out under instruction from Henry Thorold, who, in the 1870s, added a monument to his family within the church.[1] Within the village is a further Grade II listed building, Cuxwold Hall, built in 1860.[4]

Cuxwold was the location of an emergency landing ground for airplanes during the Second World War and is now the home of Grimsby Airfield.[5]
