Sigglesthorne is a small village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Hornsea on the A1035 road (formerly B1244) where it meets the B1243 road.

According to the 2011 UK census, Sigglesthorne parish had a population of 404,[1] an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 282.[2]

Church of St Lawrence, Sigglesthorne

The village has around 175 houses. There is also an ancient church dedicated to St. Lawrence that was designated a Grade II* listed building in 1966 and is now recorded in the National Heritage List for England, maintained by Historic England.[3] There is also a Church of England school.

It is rumoured throughout the village that the settlement was given its name as a result of a Viking who lived there. This Viking leader was supposedly called Siggle/Siggul, and since hawthorne is the predominant type of hedge around the village, it was given the name "Siggul's thorne" → Sigglesthorne.

Hornsea Road in Sigglesthorne is now the home to a large garden centre named Spring Garden Centre.
