Stroxton (/ˈstrsən/) is a village in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 3 miles (4.8 km) south from the centre of Grantham and about 1 mile (1.6 km) north-west from Great Ponton and the A1 road.[1]

At one time Stroxton was a civil parish but in 1931 the parish was merged with nearby Little Ponton to form the parish of Little Ponton and Stroxton .[2]

The village comprises 15 households. The parish church is dedicated to All Saints.
