Winceby is a village in the civil parish of Lusby with Winceby (where the population the included) in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England.[1] It is situated in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and about 5 miles (8.0 km) from both Horncastle and Spilsby.[2]

The village is notable for the (Civil War) Battle of Winceby, which took place in 1643, when the Royalist army was defeated by the Roundheads at "Slash Hill".[3]

There is a church, St Margaret's, and a garage. The village is very close to the Snipe Dales nature reserve and country park, owned by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
