Edlington is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3.2 km) north-west from the town of Horncastle, and in the civil parish of Edlington with Wispington. In the 2001 Census the parish population was recorded as 147,[1] reducing to 134 at the 2011 census.[2]

Edlington Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Helen.[3] Originating in the 12th century, it was rebuilt in 1859 by James Fowler, but retained its Norman tower arch and Early English font.[4]

A further listed building is the late 16th-century Hall Farm House.[5]
