Worlaby is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England, 6 miles (10 km) south-west from Barton-Upon-Humber and 5 miles (8 km) north-east from Brigg. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 547. It lies on the B1204, and to the east of the River Ancholme. It is one of the five Low Villages – South Ferriby, Horkstow, Saxby All Saints, Bonby, and Worlaby – between Brigg and the River Humber, named so because of their position below the northern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Worlaby was previously part of South Humberside administrative district, and before that, the North Lindsey division of Lindsey, Lincolnshire.
The original 13th- to 14th-century Grade II listed parish church dedicated to St Clement was re-built between 1873 and 1877, although the early Norman piers of the nave, windows and Late Saxon tower arch were re-used. The churchyard contains the war grave of a Second World War Home Guard volunteer.
To the west of the village to the River Ancholme is Worlaby Carrs, an area of arable land converted by Defra to wet grassland as sanctuary for wintering fowl. In early 2011 a proposal to site a wind farm on the Carrs met with local opposition.
