Sudbrooke is a small village and Civil Parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.[1] It is situated 4.5 miles (7 km) north-east from the centre of Lincoln.

Sudbrooke lies just off the A158 Lincoln to Skegness road, and although the original heart of the village near the church has existed for centuries, the main development as a commuter village for Lincoln took place from the 1970s. Known only from written records the site of Holme in Sudbrooke has been built over since.[2]

Sudbrooke church is dedicated to Saint Edward the Confessor. and was built in 1860 by Dodson of Newcastle. It is a Grade II* listed building.[3] A much older churchyard cross was restored at about the same time.[4] The new church replaced an older brick building, possibly itself a successor to an older Norman church.[5] The church is part of the Barlings Group Ministry in the Deanery of Lawres. The incumbent is The Revd R G Spaight.[6][7]

There appears to have been a searchlight battery in the village at some point during the Second World War.[8]

Although facilities are few, Sudbrooke has a village shop, which opened in 2004. There is also a café, a hairdresser, a filling station, two playgrounds, and a village hall which is primarily used by independent groups.[9][10]
