Thorpe St Peter is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north-west from the town of Wainfleet.

Thorpe is listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having 33 households, two mills and a church.[2]

The parish church, dedicated to Saint Peter is a Grade I listed building dating from 1200 with later additions and alterations, and restored in the 19th century. It is built of greenstone and limestone. The west tower dates from the mid-14th century, and there is an early 13th-century font.[3]

Thorpe Culvert railway station was opened here in 1873.[4]
