Haugh is a hamlet and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated about 2 miles (3 km) south-west from the town of Alford.[1]

Haugh is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book, with 37 households.[2]

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Leonard and is a Grade I listed building dating from the 11th century, with later additions, and a restoration in 1873. It is built of chalk and greenstone with red-brick patching. The blocked north door is late 12th-century, with both the font and the south door 14th-century. On the south wall there is an alabaster wall plaque to Sir Charles Bolle, who died in 1690, and on the north wall a large wall monument to Sir John Bolle, who died in 1606.[3]

Manor Farmhouse is a red-brick Grade II listed country house and former seat of the Bolle family, now a farmhouse dating from the mid-16th century with later additions.[4]
