Grasby is a small village in Lindsey, the northern part of Lincolnshire. The population of the civil parish (including Clixby) taken at the 2011 census was 480.

The village is three miles north-west of the town of Caistor, in the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.[1]

Grasby's 13th-century parish church, dedicated to All Saints', stands opposite the village primary school. The church is part of the Caistor group of parishes in the Deanery of West Wold.[2] The Rev Charles Tennyson Turner, brother of the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, was Vicar here in his time.[3]

The village school came close to closing at the end of the 20th century, but remains open.[3] It is now Grasby All Saints Church of England Primary School.


The village hall holds events such as Rock and Roll and Jive classes, runs a Learn Direct programme, and is used by the village school for physical education lessons and a yearly Easter ceremony.[1]

Grasby has one public house, The Cross Keys,[3] on the Caistor to Brigg road, that for a time held a village shop. A second public house, The Bluebell, on the corner of Church Hill and Canty Nook, is now closed.
