Uffington is a village and civil parish in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 686. It is situated in the valley of the River Welland, between Stamford and The Deepings.
Uffington is served by a parish council, two District Councillors and a County Councillor. The current district councillors elected in May 2011 are Kelham Cooke (Con) and Rosemary Woolley (Con)
The village lies 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Stamford on the A16 where the low Jurassic clay and cornbrash ridge on which it stands lies 100 feet (30 m) or so above the level of The Fens. Uffington Park, the grounds of a country house demolished by fire in 1904, lies between the village and the river. Subsidiary buildings of Uffington House remain.
The village holds an annual Scarecrow Adventure trail where visitors participate in early May Bank Holiday festivities and search for scarecrows around the village.
The parish church is dedicated to St Michael & All Angels, and is in the Uffington Group of churches that also includes Tallington, Barholm, West Deeping Wilsthorpe, Braceborough and Greatford. On the west side of the village is a nursery, and on the Market Deeping side, the Ye Olde Bertie Arms public house on Bertie Lane.
To the north-east is Casewick Hall. This is the location of a Deserted Medieval Village mentioned as "Casuic" in the Domesday survey, and as "Casewick" in a tax list of 1334. By 1816 only Casewick Hall and one other house had survived.
