Grimoldby is a village in Lindsey, the northern part of Lincolnshire, four miles east of the nearest small town, Louth.

The parish church is dedicated to St Edith. It is of early Perpendicular Gothic style with embattled and crocketed aisles and clerestory, set with gargoyles.[1][2] The church is a Grade I listed building.[3]

In 1885 Kelly's Directory reported that the chief crops grown were wheat, barley, beans and oats, and that Grimoldby had three chapels, Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and Free Methodist, and a National School.[4]

Grimoldby used to have a railway station.
