West Butterwick is a village and civil parish in the Isle of Axholme, Lincolnshire. It lies approximately four miles north-east from Epworth and the same distance north from Owston Ferry, on the western bank of the River Trent opposite its neighbour East Butterwick. The civil parish corresponds to the township in the ancient parish of Owston.
West Butterwick Grade II-listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Mary. It was built in 1841 of beige brick, with a thin octagonal west tower. A further Grade II listed building is The Old Vicarage, built in 1863 by James Fowler of Louth. An 1824-listed windmill tower is at Mill Farm on North Street.
In 1885 Kelly's Directory recorded a Primitive Methodist and a General Baptist chapel. Within a parish area of 2,307 acres were grown potatoes, wheat, oats and beans.
