Pickworth is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish including Braceby and Sapperton was 243 at the 2011 census.[1] It is situated approximately 8 miles (13 km) both east from Grantham and south from Sleaford.

The 1086 Domesday Book lists Pickworth as having forty households and a church.[2]

The Church of England parish church of Saint Andrew is a Grade I listed building built of limestone and dating from the 12th century. The 14th-century rebuilding of the church is said to date from 1356, probably by the Pickworth family.[3] Over the chancel arch are 14th-century wall paintings dated to about 1380.
