Biscathorpe is an ancient parish and site of Biscathorpe mediæval village in Lincolnshire. It is situated on the River Bain, a mile south-west of Gayton le Wold, 6½ miles west of Louth, and to the south of the A157. It is a Conservation Area, and is traversed by the Viking Way.[1]

Biscathorpe has three buildings adjacent to the site of the mediæval village, Biscathorpe House, the Old Vicarage, converted to luxury holiday accommodation in 2013 and the Grade-II*-listed Anglican parish church dedicated to St Helen.[2] The church was built in 1847, rebuilt in 1850,[3] and restored in 1913.[4]
