Hundleby is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is a suburb of the market town of Spilsby.[2]

Hundleby is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Hundelbi", with Ivo Tallboys (Ivo Tallebois) as Lord of the Manor.[3] This was long an agricultural area, a centre for sugar beet production.

The Anglican church, which is a Grade II listed building, is dedicated to Saint Mary. The 14th-century medieval church was mostly torn down in 1854-55 and reconstructed using the original greenstone. Only the base of the tower and nave remain of the former church.[4]

Spilsby Union Workhouse was built in Hundleby in 1837, to designs by George Gilbert Scott.[5] After 1930 it became a Public Assistance Institution. In 1948 it was converted to the Gables Hospital providing geriatric care.[6] It was eventually closed and demolished.


An electoral ward in the same name exists. This ward stretches north to Swaby with a total ward population taken at the 2011 Census of 2,107.[7]
