Scrafield is a deserted medieval village or DMV,[1] situated approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) south-east from the town of Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England.

The village was not listed in Domesday Book of 1086, but first mentioned in documentary sources in 1183.[2]

Scrafield church was dedicated to Saint Michael but fell into disrepair, and by 1842 it had gone, although the churchyard was still used.[3][4] The northern part of the churchyard was levelled in 1977, and only a single 18th-century gravestone is visible today.[2][3]
