Normanton-on-Cliffe, sometimes known as Normanton, is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies on the A607 road, about 7 miles (11 km) north of the town of Grantham and 18 miles (29 km) south of the city and county town of Lincoln. It is in the civil parish of Carlton Scroop.

Historic edifices[edit]

The redundant parish church dates from the 11th century and is dedicated to Saint Nicholas of Myra. It is a Grade II* listed building in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[1]

The village has an early 19th-century milestone and village pump, which is Grade II listed as a scheduled monument and situated next to the main Grantham to Lincoln road. The inscription on the milestone reads: "From Lincoln 18 miles, from Grantham 7 miles, from London 117 miles".[2][3]
