Faldingworth is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A46, and approximately 5 miles (8 km) south-west from Market Rasen. Spridlington parish lies to the west, and Friesthorpe parish to the south-east. Faldingworth parish covers just over 2,500 acres (10 km2). The 2001 census recorded a Faldingworth population of 253,[1] increasing to 400 at the 2011 census.[2]

Faldingworth Grade II listed Anglican church, dedicated to All Saints,[3] was rebuilt in 1818 [4] and again in 1890.[5] There is a foundation stone dated 1890 beneath the east chancel window. [5] The church seats 150 people. The Anglican parish dates from 1549, and is currently part of the Middle Rasen Group of parishes.[6] The village formerly had a Methodist chapel, though this has now closed.[6]

Faldingworth has a primary school serving the parishes of Faldingworth, Buslingthorpe, Newton, Freisthorpe and Snarford. A Council School was built in 1828, and was enlarged in 1876 and again in 1889.[6]

The village also has the Coach and Horses public house and a village hall; its post office and village shop have closed.[when?]

RAF Faldingworth was used by Bomber Command during the Second World War, and although the station closed in 1972 parts of the airfield still exist. This was a Polish base, and a memorial to those who flew and failed to return is on the old airfield. There is also a memorial window and some memorabilia in the church.
