Stainton le Vale is a village in the civil parish of Thoresway in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated about 6 miles (9.7 km) north-east from the town of Market Rasen and about 6 miles south-east from the town of Caistor. It is a former civil parish[1] and lies in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In the 1086 Domesday Book it is named "Staintone", with 39 households, land and a mill.[2]

The parish church is a Grade II listed building dedicated to Saint Andrew and dating from 1300. It was restored in 1886, and again in 1914 after falling into ruin in the 17th century.[3]

Stainton le Vale CE School was recognised as a Church of England public elementary school in 1873; it appears to have closed in the summer of 1934.[4]
