Dembleby is a tiny village in Kesteven, the south-western part of Lincolnshire, in the Aswardhurn Wapentake. It is found halfway between two villages not much bigger: Aunsby to the north and Newton to the south.

The village appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 three times, as Denbelbi, Delbebi and Dembelbi.

The parish church, St Lucia's Church, is a foundation of unknown age. It was originally built in Early English Gothic style. The old church though was taken down in 1867 and the new church was built upon a better site in Norman style. The vestry in the current church was re-erected from the old church[1] and consecrated in January 1868.

The ecclesiastical parish is South Lafford.

To the west is the woodland of Dembleby Thorns.
