South Hykeham is a village and civil parish in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 835.[1] It is situated approximately 3 miles (5 km) south-west from the city and county town of Lincoln, and on the A46 road. Since 1931, South Hykeham formed part of the civil parish of Aubourn Haddington and South Hykeham,[2] but this relationship was broken in 1991 and South Hykeham is again a civil parish.[3][4]

South Hykeham is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, in which it is described as "Hichum",[5] with 14 households and two fisheries.[6]

The Grade II* listed parish church is dedicated to Saint Michael and dates from the 13th century, although it was restored and added to by Drury and Mortimer in 1869.[7]

South Hykeham Community Primary School was built in 1869 as a National school.[8]
