Rippingale is a village in Kesteven, the south-western part of Lincolnshire, sitting beside the A15 about five miles north of Bourne.

The population of the civil parish was 929 at the 2011 census.


The parish church, St Andrew's, dates from the thirteenth and fourteenth century, though the tower is a century later.[1] In the churchyard once stood a weeping ash, Fraxinus excelsior 'Pendula' – a tree rare for Britain. It survived for a century until 2002 when, having died, it was felled.

Rippingale is part of the Ringstone in Aveland group of parishes, in the Aveland Deanery of the Diocese of Lincoln.
