South Cockerington is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 4 miles (6 km) east from the market town of Louth.

The parish church is a Grade I listed building dedicated to Saint Leonard dating from the early 14th century, and restored in 1872-73. It is built from greenstone, limestone and brick. Inside there is a 15th-century font, and an alabaster monument to Sir Adrian Scrope who died in 1623, attributed to Epiphanius Evesham.[2]

South Cockerington Hall was demolished in 1926.[3]

In the village were four almshouses which are now a Grade II listed house, dating from about 1890, built in red brick.[4]
