Kirkby cum Osgodby, sometimes called Kirkby, is hamlet and former civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north-west from Market Rasen and less than 1 mile (1.6 km) west from the village and civil parish of Osgodby.

Kirkby cum Osgodby parish was abolished to create that of Osgodby in 1936.[1] This successor council now styles itself Kirkby cum Osgodby.[2]

Church[edit]

St Andrew's Church, Kirkby cum Osgodby

The church at Kirkby, dedicated to Saint Andrew and dating from the early 13th century and 1790, is built of limestone and ironstone. The nave was rebuilt in 1825, and the church restored in 1891, 1900 and 1923.[3]

The base of a medieval limestone cross in the churchyard dates from the 14th century,[3] and is both Grade II listed and an ancient scheduled monument.[4]
