Midville is a small village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated about 10 miles (16 km) north from Boston.

The village was an extra-parochial allotment of the East Fen, which was drained between 1802 and 1813, and was constituted as a parochial township by an act of Parliament passed in 1885. The East Fen is between Boston and Spilsby.[2]

Midville church was built in 1819–20 and is a plain edifice of Georgian brick.[2]

Midville railway station opened in 1913, and closed in 1970.[3]
