Springthorpe is a village and civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 138.[1] It is situated approximately 4 miles (6 km) east from the town of Gainsborough.

Springthorpe is listed in Domesday Book as "Springetorp", consisting of 21 households and a church.[2]
