Sotby is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 15 miles (24 km) north-east from the city and county town of Lincoln, midway between the market towns of Horncastle, to the south, and Market Rasen, to the north.[1] As the population of the village remains less than 100 it is now included in the civil parish of Market Stainton.

The parish church is a Grade II* listed building dedicated to Saint Peter. It dates from the 12th century, and was restored in 1857 by Michael Drury, using greenstone, limestone and some red brick. There is a gravestone in the chancel floor to John Porter, rector, who died 1688.[2]
