Lusby is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.

Situated about 4 miles (6 km) west from Spilsby, and about 5 miles (8 km) east from Horncastle, the village was a civil parish, but it now lies in that of Lusby-with-Winceby,[2] which reported a population (including Hameringham) of 147 at the 2011 census.


St Peter's Church, Lusby

In the 1086 Domesday Book, Lusby is listed as "Luzebi", with 26 households, a meadow of 180 acres (0.73 km2), a mill and a church.[3]

The parish church is Grade I-listed and dedicated to St Peter. It is built in greenstone and dates from the 11th century, with 15th-century additions. It was further altered and reduced in 1893 by Ewan Christian, and in the 20th century an porch was added. A late 11th-early 12th-century grave marker is incorporated above the keystone of the blocked south doorway of the nave.[4][5]

A scion of the parish was the Very Revd Dr Penyston Booth, Dean of Windsor, whose brother served as Rector till 1716.

Lusby CofE School was built as a National School to serve the village as well as nearby Winceby and Asgarby. It closed in 1962.[6]
