Stainby is a hamlet in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3.2 km) west from the A1 road, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east from the Viking Way and the Leicestershire border, and 8 miles (13 km) south from Grantham.
Stainby is nominally in the civil parish of Gunby and Stainby (where the population is included), although the parish is now administered as part of the Colsterworth district parishes. Stainby had been a parish in its own right until 1931. Adjacent villages include Buckminster, North Witham, Colsterworth, Gunby, Sewstern and Skillington.
Stainby is on the A151 road which runs between Melton Mowbray (Buckminster Road) and Colsterworth (Colsterworth Road). The road is frequented by heavy goods vehicles from the nearby industrial estate at Sewstern and by vehicles heading from the Midlands towards East Anglia; an alternative route is through Wymondham and South Witham.
