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. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 1,788.[2]

Sudbrooke is situated 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.[3]

Sudbrooke church is dedicated to Saint Edward the Confessor, and was built in 1860 by John Dobson of Newcastle upon Tyne. It is a Grade II* listed building.[4] A much older churchyard cross was restored at about the same time.[5] The new church replaced an older brick building, possibly itself a successor to an older Norman church.[6] The church is part of the Barlings Group Ministry in the Deanery of Lawres. The incumbent is Rev R G Spaight.[7][8]

There appears to have been a searchlight battery in the village at some point during the Second World War.[9]

Although facilities are few, Sudbrooke has a Private 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.[10][11]
