Horsington is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies on the B1190, 5 miles (8.0 km) north from Woodhall Spa and 5 miles (8.0 km) west from Horncastle. The parish includes the hamlet of Poolham.

In 1860 the Grade II listed parish church of All Saints was completely rebuilt in red brick, the previous structure being thatched.[2] At that time the Horsington Anglican rectory and living was in the gift of Magdelen College, Oxford, as principal landowner and provider of the village Lords of the Manor. Magdelen possibly provided the church organ.[3] The same year the College founded the village National School, and subscribed to its support. Kelly also notes the existence of a Wesleyan Chapel.[4]

Other Grade II listed buildings are three cottages on the village’s Main Street, and a ruined 13th-century chapel at Poolham Hall.[5]
