Susworth is a hamlet in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is on the east bank of the River Trent, 3 miles (5 km) west from Scotter, in which civil parish it lies. The nearest large towns are Gainsborough, approximately 7 miles (11 km) to the south, and Scunthorpe 7 miles to the north-east.
Susworth is recorded in the 1872 White's Directory as a hamlet of Scotter, others being Scotterthorpe and Cotehouses. There were six farmers in the hamlet, one of whom was also a blacksmith. There was the licensed victualler of the White Horse public house who was also a coal merchant, a further coal merchant, two shopkeepers, a joiner & wheelwright, a corn miller, a maltster, and a foreman maltster.
In 1885 Susworth contained a Primitive Methodist chapel. Occupations included ten farmers, a shopkeeper, wheelwright, blacksmith, and the landlord of the White Horse public house. By 1933 there were two Methodist chapels and a church reading room. The number of farmers had dropped to five, with one smallholder. A shop and the White Horse pub still existed.
Susworth soldiers killed in the First World War received no memorial within the village; at least eleven Susworth men survived the war.
