North Owersby is a village in the civil parish of Owersby in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England, and about 6 miles (10 km) north from the town of Market Rasen. North Owersby was a separate civil parish from 1866 to 1936.[1]

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Martin and is a Grade II listed building. It was totally rebuilt 1762 using medieval ironstone masonry, and was altered in the 19th century. The font dates from the 18th century.[2]

There are two Grade II listed farmhouses in the village, Hall Farm,[3] and Manor Farm, both of which were built of yellow brick about 1835.[4]
