Walmsgate is a hamlet in the civil parish of Burwell, in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated on the A16 road, 6 miles (10 km) south-east from Louth.

The lost village of Walmsgate is mentioned in 1377. A priest was last instituted about 1435, and eight families remained in 1563. The small church was still standing in the early 17th century. The walls of the church still stand to a maximum height of 6 feet (1.8 m) and are covered with a dense growth of ivy.[1][2] The limestone ruins of the church are Grade II listed.[3]
