Grimoldby is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 4 miles (6 km) east from Louth.

Grimoldby Grade I listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Edith.[1] It is of early Perpendicular style with embattled and crocketed aisles and clerestory, set with gargoyles.[2][3]

In 1885 Kelly's Directory reported that the chief crops grown were wheat, barley, beans and oats, and that Grimoldby had three chapels, Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and Free Methodist, and a National School.[4]

Village amenities include a Londis shop, Grimoldby Primary School,[5] a nursery, an Italian restaurant, public house and a cricket club. Amenities also serve the adjoining village of Manby, which is 0.5 miles (0.8 km) to the south, separated from Grimoldby by the B1200.

Grimoldby used to have a railway station.

Governance[edit]
