Rippingale is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish was 929 at the 2011 census.[1] The village is situated on the A15 road, about 5 miles (8 km) north from Bourne.[2]

Rippingale is part of the Ringstone in Aveland group of parishes, in the Aveland Deanery of the Diocese of Lincoln.[3] The incumbent is Linda Pugh.[3] St Andrew's parish church dates from the thirteenth and fourteenth century, though the tower dates from a century later.[4] In the church yard was located a weeping ash, Fraxinus excelsior 'Pendula' – a tree rare for Britain. It survived for a century until 2002 – having died it was felled.
