Hallington is a small village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3 km) south-west from the town of Louth in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Hallington is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Halintun", with 25 households, 10 acres of meadow, and assigned to Earl Hugh of Chester.[1][2]

The village is probably the site of a Medieval settlement, indicated by aerial observations showing earthwork evidence of ridge and furrow fields, crofts, buildings and sunken lanes.[3]

The parish church, which was dedicated to Saint Lawrence, no longer exists. Three isolated graves are all that remain of church and burial ground.[4]

Hallington railway station was sited in the village; it opened in 1876 and closed in 1956.[5] The main building still exists and is now a private residence.[6]

Off Station Road is Home Farm House, a Grade II listed farmhouse c.1800.[7]
