Sturton is a village in the civil parish of Scawby, North Lincolnshire, England. It lies 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south-west from Brigg, 0.5 miles (0.8 km) south from Scawby, to which it is conjoined, and 1 mile (1.6 km) south from the M180 on the B1207.

During the 19th century Kelly's Directory noted that Sturton was a hamlet in the parish of Scawby-cum-Sturton, which also included the hamlet of Scawby Brook, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the north-east. The railway station for Sturton and Scawby on the Gainsborough to Brigg line lies within Sturton, 0.75 miles (1.2 km) to the south.[1] The station and line was part of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway.[2]

Sturton has three Grade II listed farmhouses: c.1849 Station Farmhouse,[2] late 18th-century Home Farmhouse,[3][4] and late 18th-century Manor Farmhouse.[5]
