Farforth or Farforth-cum-Maidenwell is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the civil parish of Maidenwell, and approximately 6 miles (10 km) south from the town of Louth.[1]

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Peter and is a Grade II listed building, rebuilt in 1861 using material from a previous medieval church. The font dates from the 15th century.[2] The 1861 rebuilding in Early English style was financed by the family of William and Francis Osiear and the Corporation of Basingstoke. William and Francis Osiear are commemorated through an engraved brass plate in the chancel.[3]
