Stickford is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated near the A16 road and approximately 6 miles (10 km) south-west from the town of Spilsby.

Stickford is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Stichesforde, meaning 'stick ford' (cf. the nearby Stickney).[1]

Stickford church is dedicated to Saint Helen and is a Grade II* listed building. It dates from the 13th century although it has been much restored.[2]

Stickford County Primary School finally closed in 1987. It had opened as a National School in 1846, and was a Board School between 1872 and 1903 when those were abolished.[3]

Shaws Windmill is a three-storey red-brick tower mill dating from 1820, which ceased working in 1952, and is now Grade II listed.[4][5]
